Lesson Overview

27.2 Respiration


Think about it l.jpg

THINK ABOUT IT

  • All animal tissues require oxygen for respiration and produce carbon dioxide as a waste product. For that reason, all animals must obtain oxygen from their environment and release carbon dioxide.

  • Humans can drown because our lungs can’t extract the oxygen we need from water. Most fishes have the opposite problem; out of water, their gills don’t work.

  • How are these different respiratory systems adapted to their different functions?

Gas Exchange

  • What characteristics do the respiratory structures of all animals share?

Gas Exchange

  • What characteristics do the respiratory structures of all animals share?

  • Respiratory structures provide a large surface area of moist, selectively permeable membrane.

  • Respiratory structures maintain a difference in the relative concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide on either side of the respiratory membrane, promoting diffusion.


Gas exchange5 l.jpg

Gas Exchange

  • Living cells can not actively pump oxygen or carbon dioxide across membranes. Yet, in order to breathe, all animals must exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with their surroundings.

  • Animals have evolved respiratory structures that promote the movement of these gases in the required directions by passive diffusion.


Gas diffusion and membranes l.jpg

Gas Diffusion and Membranes

  • Substances diffuse from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.

  • Gases diffuse most efficiently across a thin, moist membrane that is permeable to those gases.

  • The larger the surface area of that membrane, the more diffusion can take place.


Requirements for respiration l.jpg

Requirements for Respiration

  • Respiratory structures provide a large surface area of moist, selectively permeable membrane.

  • Respiratory structures maintain a difference in the relative concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide on either side of the respiratory membrane, promoting diffusion.

  • Because respiratory surfaces are moist, an animal’s breath condenses into fog when the air outside is very dry.

  • How do aquatic animals breathe?

  • Many aquatic invertebrates and most aquatic chordates other than reptiles and mammals exchange gases through gills.

  • Aquatic reptiles and aquatic mammals, such as whales, breathe with lungs and must hold their breath underwater.

Respiratory Surfaces of Aquatic Animals

  • Some aquatic invertebrates, such as cnidarians and some flatworms, are relatively small and have thin-walled bodies whose outer surfaces are always wet.

  • These animals rely on diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide through their outer body covering.

  • A few aquatic chordates, including lancelets, some amphibians, and even some sea snakes, rely on gas exchange by diffusion across body surfaces.


Respiratory surfaces of aquatic animals11 l.jpg

Respiratory Surfaces of Aquatic Animals

  • Many aquatic invertebrates and most aquatic chordates exchange gases through gills.

  • Gills are feathery structures that expose a large surface area of thin, selectively permeable membrane to water.

  • Inside gill membranes is a network of tiny, thin-walled blood vessels called capillaries.

Respiratory Surfaces of Aquatic Animals

  • Many animals actively pump water over their gills as blood flows through inside.

  • As water passes over the gills, gas exchange is completed within the gill capillaries.

  • Aquatic reptiles and aquatic mammals, such as whales, breathe with lungs and must hold their breath underwater.

  • Lungs are organs that exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide between blood and air.

Respiratory Surfaces of Terrestrial Animals

  • What respiratory structures enable land animals to breathe?

  • What respiratory structures enable land animals to breathe?

  • Respiratory structures in terrestrial invertebrates include skin, mantle cavities, book lungs, and tracheal tubes.

  • What respiratory structures enable land animals to breathe?

  • But all terrestrial vertebrates—reptiles, birds, mammals, and the land stages of most amphibians—breathe with lungs.


Respiratory surfaces in land invertebrates l.jpg

Respiratory Surfaces in Land Invertebrates

  • Terrestrial invertebrates have a wide variety of respiratory structures.

  • Some land invertebrates, such as earthworms, that live in moist environments can respire across their skin, as long as it stays moist.

  • In other invertebrates, such as land snails, respiration is accomplished by the mantle cavity, which is lined with moist tissue and blood vessels.

Respiratory Surfaces in Land Invertebrates

  • Spiders respire using organs called book lungs, which are made of parallel, sheetlike layers of thin tissues containing blood vessels.

Respiratory Surfaces in Land Invertebrates

  • Most insects respire using a system of tracheal tubes that extends throughout the body.

  • Air enters and leaves the system through openings in the body surface called spiracles.


Lung structure in vertebrates l.jpg

Lung Structure in Vertebrates

  • Although lung structure in terrestrial vertebrates varies, the processes of inhaling and exhaling are similar.


Lung structure in vertebrates21 l.jpg

Lung Structure in Vertebrates

  • Inhaling brings oxygen-rich air through the trachea, or airway, into

  • the lungs.

  • Inside the lungs, oxygen diffuses into the blood through lung capillaries.

  • At the same time, carbon dioxide diffuses out of capillaries into the lungs.

  • Oxygen-poor air is then exhaled.


Amphibian reptilian and mammalian lungs l.jpg

Amphibian, Reptilian, and Mammalian Lungs

  • The internal surface area of lungs increases from amphibians to reptiles to mammals.

Amphibian, Reptilian, and Mammalian Lungs

  • A typical amphibian lung is little more than a sac with ridges.


Amphibian reptilian and mammalian lungs24 l.jpg

Amphibian, Reptilian, and Mammalian Lungs

  • Reptilian lungs are divided into chambers that increase the surface area for gas exchange.


Amphibian reptilian and mammalian lungs25 l.jpg

Amphibian, Reptilian, and Mammalian Lungs

  • Mammalian lungs branch extensively and are filled with bubblelike structures called alveoli.

Amphibian, Reptilian, and Mammalian Lungs

  • Alveoli provide an enormous surface area for gas exchange, and enable mammals to take in the large amounts of oxygen required by their high metabolic rates.


Bird lungs l.jpg

Bird Lungs

  • In birds, the lungs are structured so that air flows mostly in only one direction, so no stale air gets trapped in the system.

  • Gas exchange surfaces are continuously in contact with fresh air.

  • This highly efficient gas exchange helps birds obtain the oxygen they need to power their flight muscles at high altitudes for long periods of time.
