... at the gills occurs at the environmental temperature at which the individual is found, but O 2 offloading will occur at different temperatures in different tissues. While several regionally heterothermic fishes (e.g. billfishes, tunas and sharks) show a reduced temperature effect on haemoglobin (Hb)–O 2...

We calculated O 2 pulse (the product of stroke volume and the arterial–venous O 2 content difference), blood O 2 concentration and heart rate variability. Regardless of altitude, all eight populations...

... in the eastern Beaufort Sea. Muscle myoglobin concentrations averaged 77.9 mg g −1 , one of the highest values reported among mammals. Importantly, blood haematocrit, haemoglobin and muscle myoglobin concentrations correlated positively to indices of body condition, including maximum half-girth to length ratios...

... compared with their close relatives. This finding suggests that improvements in S aO 2 in hypoxia can require increases in both breathing and haemoglobin–O 2 affinity, because the yellow-billed pintail was the only high-altitude duck with concurrent increases in both traits compared with its low-altitude...

..., the European starling ( Sturnus vulgaris ). We show that changes in haematocrit, body mass and wing length are independent of year and brood quality, while changes in haemoglobin concentration are higher in low-quality broods. Moreover, we also identify higher oxidative stress in low-quality year and second...

The haemoglobin (Hb)-oxygen binding curve at 24.0°C showed pronounced downward and rightward shifts compared to 20.0°C and 7.0°C, indicating that both binding capacity and affinity decreased. Further, Hb levels were lower at 24.0°C than...
