  • Description

    This dataset contains measurements of oxgyen consumption rates and the gill structure of the species Amphiprion melanopus, Acanthochromis polyacanthus, and Amphiprion percula exposed to various levels of suspended sediments.

  • Other Descriptors
    • Descriptor

      Dataset contains the following variables for all three species: Oxygen consumption rates, i.e. maximum and resting oxygen consumption rates, and aerobic scope Gill structure, i.e. total and functional lamellar length, oxygen diffusion distance (calculated by (total area of functional length - area of blood stream)\/(2*functional lamellar length)), and filament thickness, and identity of examined lamella Information about fish identity; i.e. mass (g), standard length (mm), identity of parents, clutch, and tank.

      The full methodology is available in the Green Open Access publication from the Related Publications link below.
