Experimentally induced terrestrial dormancy resulted in reduced rates of oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide release by the turtle, Kinosternon flavescens. 1. 2. An unusually low respiratory quotient for dormant turtles indicates retention of carbon dioxide. 2. 3. Sharply elevated levels of oxygen consumption upon emergence from dormancy suggest payment of an oxygen debt and support previous suspicion of increased anaerobic metabolism. 3. 4. Most of the weight lost by dormant… Expand
