Amphibians have evolved multiple ways of breathing. Young amphibians, like tadpoles, use gills to breathe, and they do not leave the water. As the tadpole grows, the gills disappear and lungs grow (though some amphibians retain gills for life). These lungs are primitive and are not as evolved as mammalian lungs.

Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy Lecture Notes - Respiratory System. Respiration is the process of obtaining oxygen from the external environment & eliminating CO2. Vertebrates without swim bladders or lungs include cyclostomes, cartilaginous fish, and a few teleosts (e.g., flounders and other bottom-dwellers).

An air-breathing organ (ABO), in addition to gill respiration, appeared in fishes about M years ago. It consisted of a single primitive lung ventilated by a buccal pump. This breathing system was adopted by the first terrestrial tetrapods, and is largely preserved in current by: Amphibians are animals that live both on land and in water.

The members of the class Amphibia are believed to have evolved from the lobe-finned fishes about million years ago, taking advantage of the higher concentration of oxygen in air than in water.A fossil called Tiktaalik, discovered inwas an amazing model of the intermediate form between early tetrapods.

Diffusion of the gases is passive and it is driven by difference in O2 and CO2 concentrations on the memebranes. Abstract.

Scanning electron microscopy and vascular casting were used to study the morphology and vascular anatomy of the fully developed internal gills of Litoria ewingi tadpoles and the external gills of mexican axolotls, Ambystoma mexicanum.

The exchange units in L. ewingi consist of simple capillary loops in which blood flow should be well described by the Poiseuille Cited by: 5.

Main Text. Among tetrapods, the loss of lungs is very rare and occurs only in amphibians. In particular, salamanders of the family Plethodontidae (several genera and many species); two species of salamanders (Onychodactylus, family Hynobiidae); and one caecilian (Gymnophiona, Typhlonectes eiselti).Now, a single species of frog joins this list, as writing in this issue of Cited by: 6.

Amphibians are vertebrate tetrapods (“four limbs”), and include frogs, salamanders, and caecilians. The term “amphibian” loosely translates from the Greek as “dual life,” which is a reference to the metamorphosis that many frogs and salamanders undergo and the unique mix of aquatic and terrestrial phases that are required in their life cycle.

The word amphibian comes from ancient Greek words “amphi”, which means “both” and “bios”, which means “life”. Even if the word amphibious is an adjective used to describe animals that can live both on land and water, in the case of amphibians it also refers to both life stages through which these animals go through, as amphibians are born in an aquatic larval stage and.

Many amphibious vertebrates, at some stage of their development are actually trimodal breathers that use various combinations of respiratory surfaces to breath both water (skin and/or gill) and.

Gill-like structures are also found in lower Devonian scorpions, but the first direct evidence for air breathing in Palaeozoic scorpions was book lung-like structures found in a lower Carboniferous scorpion Cited by: The majority of marine air-breath- ing fishes are amphibious, and air breathing is con- tinuous, with rapid and complete transitions be- tween aerial and aquatic respiration.

Amphibious marine fish engage in terrestrial sojourns to avoid competition and to exploit successfully habitats that are not saturated with comp)etitors and pred- ators.
