The standard rate of O2 consumption of various aquatic lunged salamanders is compared for animals breathing water only and for animals breathing both air and water. When submerged and prevented from surfacing in air-equilibrated water, most species studied were capable of survival for periods of at least two weeks. The animals that were allowed to respire bimodally exhibited an increased rate of O2 consumption relative to their submerged counterparts who were denied the use of pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
