Metrics details. Amphibian declines and extinctions are emblematic for the current sixth mass extinction event. Infectious drivers of these declines include the recently emerged fungal pathogens Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis and Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans Chytridiomycota.
Amphibian chytridiomycosis: a review with focus on fungus-host interactions
Spectral amplitude density from two lungfish L. Changes in the heart rate in L. The effect of autonomic modulation of HRV on mean oxygen uptake per breath in L. The rostrocaudal distribution of cell bodies of VPN in the brainstem of L. Morphometric variables in the ultrastructure of transverse sections of the cardiac branches of the vagus nerve in L. The present study has revealed that the lungfish has both structural and functional features of its system for physiological control of heart rate, previously considered solely mammalian, that together generate variability HRV. Ultrastructural and electrophysiological investigation revealed that the nerves connecting the brain to the heart are myelinated, conferring rapid conduction velocities, comparable to mammalian fibers that generate instantaneous changes in heart rate at the onset of each air breath.
Modern amphibians are characterized by the flexibility of their gaseous exchange mechanisms. Amphibian skin is moistened by mucous secretions and is well supplied with blood vessels. It is used for respiration to varying degrees. When lungs are present, carbon dioxide may pass out of the body across the skin, but in some salamanders there are no lungs and all respiratory exchanges occur via the skin. Even in such animals as frogs , it seems that oxygen can be taken up at times by the skin, under water for example.
