...Edward P. Snelling; Rebecca Duncker; Karl K. Jones; Erinn P. Fagan-Jeffries; Roger S. Seymour ABSTRACT Flying insects have the highest mass-specific metabolic rate of all animals. Oxygen is supplied to the flight muscles by a combination of diffusion and convection along the internal air-filled...

..., but the ultimate physiological significance of this phenomenon in gas exchange has not been determined. Possible functions of this mechanism include to convectively transport air within or out of the body, to increase the local pressure within the tracheae,or some combination thereof. To determine whether tracheal...
