... to transition physiologically from conforming passively to ambient oxygen levels to actively regulating their blood oxygen. However, it is unknown whether these mechanical and physiological breathing transitions are temporally or functionally linked, or how both transitions relate to lung maturation and gas...

... tension, in which a bubble is drawn into the buccal cavity and compressed into the lungs. In most tadpoles, bubble-sucking is replaced by breach breathing (breaking the surface to access air) at larger body sizes. In contrast, H. versicolor tadpoles bubble-suck throughout the larval period, despite...

... and A. olivaceus . Tadarida brasiliensis had lower resting oxygen consumption, but higher maximum oxygen consumption and aerobic scope, than the rodents. The blood–gas barrier of the bat was thinner and its relative lung size was larger; however,alveolar surface density was similar among the three species...

...P. GREENAWAY; S. MORRIS; B. R. McMAHON The lungs are responsible for essentially all uptake of oxygen in Birgus latro . Elimination of CO 2 in resting crabs appears to occur largely across the gills but during exercise approximately half the output of CO 2 is pulmonary. Pa O 2 was high in resting...

...STEVEN F. PERRY The complex, multicameral lungs of the Nile crocodile are characterized by rows of tubular chambers, which in cranial and ventral lung regions are broad and sac-like. The inner surface of the chambers is enhanced by cubicles (ediculae), the capillary-bearing walls of which are often...
