...Shawn R. Noren ABSTRACT Marine mammals endure extended breath-holds while performing active behaviors, which has fascinated scientists for over a century. It is now known that these animals have large onboard oxygen stores and utilize oxygen-conserving mechanisms to prolong aerobically supported...

... plasticity of a marine predator in different environments. We measured the oxygen stores and diving behavior of South American sea lions throughout most of its range, allowing us to demonstrate that diving ability and behavior vary across its range. We found no significant differences in mass-specific blood...

.... Although there have been many measurements of body oxygen stores, there have been few investigations of the actual depletion of those stores during dives. Yet, it is the pattern, rate and magnitude of depletion of O 2 stores that underlie the ADL. Therefore, in order to assess strategies of O 2 store...

.... Magnitude and distribution of oxygen stores in penguins A lower stroke rate at sea than at the isolated dive hole is one mechanism that could account for a longer ADL at sea and for the performance of repetitive, long deep dives at sea. However, in contrast to this hypothesis, stroke rates of dives...

.... Pregnancy status did not influence blood volume. Mean dive duration, a proxy for physiological demand, increased as a function of how long seals had been at sea, followed by mass and hematocrit. Strong effects of female body mass (range, 218-600 kg) on dive duration, which were independent of oxygen stores...
