Méthodes de mesure du métabolisme respiratoire chez les animaux aquatiques

  • Eric Pattee
Article

Rcesumé

L'article comporte un rappel des principales méthodes, de leurs advantages et de leurs inconvénients. Les conditions faites à l'animal pendant l'expérience sont trés variables d'une méthode à l'ature. Or des mesures comparatives effectuées par une méthode chimique et une méthode manométrique ont donné des résultats significative-ment différents. Les chiffres fournis par une seule méthode ne sont donc pas valables dans l'absolu. Lorsqu'on s'intéresse au métabolisme d'un animal dans la nature, il faut choisir une méthode oú les conditions imposées déforment les résultats le moins possible.

Summary

The principal methods for measuring the respiratory metabolism of aquatic animals are reviewed with their advantages and disadvantages. An animal does not undergo the same treatment in each of them. A chemical method and a manometric method were compared here and the results were found to differ, the former method yielding significantly lower values for Crenobia alpina and Dendrocoelum lactaeum and significantly higher values for Planaria gonocephala and Cloëon dipterum. The greatest caution is therefore necessary when basing a conclusion upon measures gathered by means of two different methods. Also when information on the normal metabolism of an animal is required, such a method must be selected as does not falsify the results by submitting the animal to grossly unnatural conditions.
