Fig. 15. Changes in blood pressure (A) and heart rate (B) of Periophthalmodon schlosseri under control (Co) conditions and during 12 h of forced submersion in normoxic water without access to air and 12 h of recovery. Before and after the submersion period, the fish were partially immersed in normoxic 50% sea water with free access to air. Values are means ± S.E.M. (N = 6). Asterisks indicate significant differences from the corresponding control value (P < 0.05).
