Temperature effects on extracellular acid-base status in terrestrial poikilotherms are well known. Comparatively less is known concerning the time course of acid-base responses to prolonged changes in temperature. In this study, two questions were addressed: (1) what is the time course of acid-base responses to a temperature change of 5 days duration in Alligator mississippiensis?; and (2) what are the relative contributions of respiratory vs metabolic (strong ion) processes to the acid-base… CONTINUE READING
