Figure 2

Chronic responses of juveniles and adult Gammarus chevreuxi to moderate hypoxia. (a) Mass-specific rates of O2 uptake under acutely declining PO2 and (b) critical PO2 (or Pc) of F0 adults (n = 6), F1 juveniles (n = 5) and F1 adults exposed to normoxic (100% air saturation) and hypoxic (40% air saturation) conditions. Individuals from the F1 generation were bred from parents exposed to the same treatment as their offspring, and reared under the same conditions. Values are expressed as mean ± s.e.m. Letters above bars indicate significant differences between groups (P < 0.05).
