SHORT COMMUNICATION ACID-BASE REGULATION IN RESPONSE TO HYPERCAPNIA IN THE LYMPHATIC AND CmCULATORY SYSTEMS OF THE TOAD BUFO MARINUS

Abstract

In anuran amphibians, vascular filtrate and water of external origin enter the extensive subcutaneous spaces (Carter, 1979), which act as lymph reservoirs (Kampmeier, 1969). Although the volume of the lymphatic system is unknown, Thorson (1964) estimated 20 % of the total body weight of Bufo marinus (L.) to be occupied by interstitial fluid, including lymph… (More)
