Respiratory gas exchange of high altitude adapted chick embryos

Respiratory gas exchange of high altitude adapted chick embryos

Respiration Physiology 21(1): 61-70

Gas exchange by embryos from fowl acclimatized to an altitude of 3800m was studied. Oxygen tension and CO2 tension differences across the egg-shell were less than sea-level values by a factor of two.
