Ecology: Oxygen & Growth of Aquatic cold blooded animals

10 ratings | 423 views
Breathing under water is challenging. How does the oxygen uptake of cold-blooded, aquatic animals change as they grow? Both the capacity for oxygen uptake and the oxygen requirements of animals changes with body size. This animation explains how body size affects oxygen supply and demand via changes in surface area to volume ratios and viscosity effects to provide a better understanding of changes in respiratory challenges during growth.
