Abstract: 1. Tigriopus californicus activity varies from normal at 100% of oxygen saturation to that of a torpid condition at 0%. 2. Gross physiological torpor occurs around 4-9% of oxygen saturation. 3. Post-anoxic oxygen consumption rates show no repayment of an oxygen debt. 4. Increasing periods of anoxia show subsequently depressed rates of oxygen consumption. 5. Q10 values ranged from 1.4-1.9.
