Effects of temperature and oxygen availability on water loss and carbon dioxide release in two sympatric saproxylic invertebrates

Woodman, James; Cooper, Paul; Haritos, Victoria S


Water loss and VCO2 relative to temperature and oxygen tension was investigated in a log-dwelling onychophoran (Euperipatoides rowelli) and a sympatric, un-described millipede species using flow-through respirometry. Onychophorans possess a tracheal system featuring permanently open spiracles. Total body water loss was consistently very high in E. rowelli and there was a positive correlation with increasing temperature. CO2 output was continuous, increasing with higher temperatures and...[Show more]
