Fig. 14. Changes in arterial Po2 (A), pH (B), total CO2 (TCO2, C) and Pco2 (D) of Periophthalmodon schlosseri under control (Co) conditions and during 6 h of air exposure and 2 h of recovery. Before and after the air exposure, the fish were partially immersed in normoxic 50% sea water with free access to air. Values are means ± S.E.M. (N = 7). Asterisks indicate significant differences from the corresponding control value (P < 0.05).
