Metabolism and gas exchange patterns in Rhodnius prolixus
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-02)
Insect's metabolic rate and patterns of gas-exchange varies according to different factors such as: species, activity, mass, and temperature among others. One particular striking pattern of gas-exchange in insects is ...
The effects of temperature on the gas exchange cycle in Agathemera crassa
Insects exhibit three patterns of gas exchange: continuous (CoGE), cyclic (CGE) and discontinuous (DGE). In this work, we present the first record of a DGE in Phasmatodea and its transition to CGE and to CoGE through a ...
Sequential Methyl-Fluorine Exchange Reactions of Siloxide Ions in the Gas Phase
(WILEY-V C H VERLAG GMBHWEINHEIM, 2012)
Water and nitrogen conditions affect the relationships of Delta13C and Delta18O to gas exchange and growth in durum wheat
(Oxford University PressSociety for Experimental Biologyhttp://jxb.oxfordjournals.org/content/60/6/1633.abstract, 2013)
Gas exchanges and mineral content of corn crops irrigated with saline water1
Inferior quality water can be used by agricultural producers in arid and semi-arid regions due to the lower availability of good-quality water. Therefore, the objective was to identify the influence of irrigation with ...
Leaf gas exchanges responses of atemoya scion grafted onto Annona rootstocks
We examined the hypothesis that leaf gas exchange of scion is affected by different rootstocks in wood plants. We investigated daily courses of gas exchange and photosynthetic potential using the CO2 assimilation rates as ...
Acute effects of temperature and hypercarbia on cutaneous and branchial gas exchange in the South American lungfish, Lepidosiren paradoxa
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-01-01)
The South American lungfish, Lepidosiren paradoxa inhabits seasonal environments in the Central Amazon and Parana-Paraguay basins that undergo significant oscillations in temperature throughout the year. They rely on ...
Thermodynamic study of an EFGT (externally fired gas turbine) cycle with one detailed model for the ceramic heat exchanger
The EFGT (externally fired gas turbine) cycle has been considered as an option to burn biomass in gas turbines. One key element on the implementation of one EFGT cycle is the high temperature heat exchanger (HTHE) necessary ...
