  • Abstract Although many adult insects and adult, unfed ticks are known to exchange respiratory gases discontinuously, the respiratory physiology of other tracheate arthropods is almost unknown. In this paper we present data to test hypotheses on the gas exchange dynamics, standard metabolic rate (SMR, as a function of body mass and temperature) and activity metabolism of the giant red velvet mite Dinothrombium magnificum , which according to published accounts is a predator on termites and may… CONTINUE READING
