Abstract
The long term goal of the project is the evaluation of the ecology of benthic invertebrates which may be useful as indicators of water quality or as indicator organisms in bioassay studies. The present study determines the individual oxygen consumption rates of common benthic invertebrates. It was decided that the Warburg apparatus would be used to make preliminary respiratory studies on aquatic invertebrates. By using the same individuals of members of the same species in the Warburg apparatus and the flow-through electro-chemical system, a comparison was made of the two systems.
