II, pp. 59 - 63: 'In 1870 Bert published an important work dealing with the problems of the comparative physiology of respiration. Bert analyzed the anatomical structures and the physiological function of the respiratory organs of vertebrates and invertebrates. He also dealt with the problem of tissue respiration and showed that the oxygen content of the blood depended on the exterior air pressure. The respiratory movements of aquatic and air-breathing animals were investigated with novel methods and techniques ... differentiated true asphyxia caused by lack of moxygen from carbon dioxide poisoning. This work, rich in facts and new views, also, provided a critical evaluation of a vast number of problems.': Fulton - Wilson, 141: ' (These) fundamental studies on the effects of different partial pressures of oxygen upon the respiration of animals ... laid the foundation for aviation medicine.': Garrison, 548: This work he dedicated to Claude Bernard, whose pupil he was.: Fulton-Hoff, 225: Robinson, p. 18 etc.: First edition.
