Abstract: In general, the oxygen affinity of hemocyanin does not decrease
when tropical decapod crustaceans carryon gas exchange in air instead of water.
Other oxygenation properties such as cooperativity and the Bohr shift also
change very little, if at all. The generalization of a higher oxygen affinity in
tropical than in temperate zone species appears to be true but has exceptions of
unclear origins, emphasizing the crudity of correlations between respiratory
properties of the blood and gross features of the environment.
