Respiration rates of Chiloplacus sp. and other arctic nematodes at low and high temperatures

  title={Respiration rates of Chiloplacus sp. and other arctic nematodes at low and high temperatures},
  author={D. L. C. Procter},
  journal={Polar Biology},
Respiration of an undescribed species of soil nematode of the genus Chiloplacus from the Canadian High Arctic was measured at 2°, 5°, 10°, 15°, 20° and 25°C. The corresponding metabolic rates were 0.2697×10-3 μl, 0.3406×10-3 μl, 0.8408×10-3 μl, 0.8539×10-3 μl, 1.8420×10-3 μl and 2.9360×10-3 μl O2 ind-1 h-1, respectively, for a nematode of 1.0 μg dry weight. The relationship between respiration and dry weight for Chiloplacus sp. at 10°C is described by the function log R=-3.0693+0.8844 log W… CONTINUE READING
