1. The behaviour of final-instar larvae of Chironomus plumosus housed in U-shaped glass tubes was observed at various concentrations of dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide. 2. Respiratory behaviour, consisting of intermittent irrigation of the tube, alternates with periods of filter-feeding or complete immobility. In well-aerated water about 50% of the time is occupied by respiratory behaviour, 35% by filter-feeding and the remainder by periods of rest. As the oxygen concentration in the water… Expand
