Abstract: There is a large variation in oxygen consumption rates for both Anthopleura elegantissima and A. xanthogrammica. Aerial respiration was found to be two to three times greater than submerged respiration for both species. A b value found for A. elegantissima was calculated to be 0.20. This is quite different from b values for other anemones and other intertidal invertebrates, but seems expected.
