The influence of fluctuations of ambient oxygen tensions and temperature on the rate of oxygen consumption (VO2) was determined for the tadpole shrimp, Triops longicaudatus. VO2 was oxygen dependent up to 185 torr PO2, and Q10 for oxygen consumption between 20° and 30°C was 1.9. From these results it was estimated that oxygen consumption increases more than 1100 μl · g-1 · h-1 in T. longicaudatus for typical diurnal changes in temperature and oxygen in desert ephemeral pools. Elevated VO2 may… CONTINUE READING
