    • Abstract


      Handling caused excitement which resulted in lower random activity associated with higher rate of oxygen consumption. The routine and standard oxygen consumption rates were increased by 260 and 238%, and 291 and 277% at 30° and 35° C respectively. The temperature effect (30–35° C) did not cause a marked difference (P < 0·05) in the rate of oxygen consumption and random activity inR. corsula.
