It is possible that the mechanisms that result in the low Pao2 in L. variegatus also minimise passive water loss in air in the species, which is ... forL. variegatus, it is not possible to convert the measured weight losses and gains to a change in total body water (see Innes et al. 1986). For immersed L. variegatus it is possible to calculate the apparent diffusion limitation index for gas exchange (Piiper 1982).
