Oxygen consumption rates of Lineus corrigatus, a large marine nemertean worm, and the effects of diesel fuel oil on metabolic rates
Entry ID: K057_1989_1991_NZ_2

Abstract: A preliminary survey of the respiratory physiology of Lineus corrigatus, a large marine worm living in the shallow waters around Ross Island was conducted. Worms were caught using traps in shallow water. The worms were placed into closed box respirometers and the rate of oxygen consumption was determined by monitoring oxygen tension in the water with an oxygen meter and electrode.
