CrabShip: Crab Oxygen Intake

Description Format Details Source

Description

Oxygen intake of crabs with different noise sources

Format

A data frame with 34 observations on the following 3 variables.

Mass

Oxygen intake of crabs with different noise sources

Oxygen

Rate of oxygen consumption (mu moles h^-1)

Noise

Source of noise (ambient or ship)

Details

Animals that are stressed might increase their oxygen consumption. Biologists measured oxygen consumption of shore crabs that were either exposed to 7.5 minutes of ship noise or 7.5 minutes of ambient harbor noise.
