...Michael S. Hedrick; David R. Jones ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to investigate the roles of branchial and gas bladder reflex pathways in the control of gill ventilation and air-breathing in the bowfin Amia calva . We have previously determined that bowfin use two distinct air-breathing...

... was undertaken to determine the significance of air-breathing in two fish species while exercising in oxygen-rich water. Oxygen consumption from air and water was measured during mild activity in bowfin ( Amia calva ) and spotted gar ( Lepisosteus oculatus ) by sealing a fish in an acrylic flume that contained...

... ). The characterisation of aerial ventilation patterns in fish as ‘aperiodic’ has been generally accepted on the basis of qualitative examination and it remains to be validated with rigorous testing. The bowfin, Amia calva (L.), is a primitive air-breathing fish that makes intermittent excursions to the air–water...

...David J. McKenzie; Mark L. Burleson; David J. Randall ABSTRACT The role of sensory afferent information from the gills of Amia calva in cardiovascular and ventilatory control was investigated by bilateral branchial denervation and pseudobranch ablation. Aquatic hypoxia or 1 mg of sodium cyanide...
