1. The air-breathing behaviour of Hoplosternum thoracatum and Brochis splendens has been studied and their strategy of coordinating the respiratory and hydrostatic functions of the accessory respiratory organ has been examined. 2. H. thoracatum and B. splendens are continuous but not obligate air-breathers and individuals of the former breathe air in synchrony with each other. 3. Frequency of air-breathing increased with increased activity in H. thoracatum. 4. Aquatic respiration (Vo2) in H… CONTINUE READING
