Experiments conducted on the newt Taricha torosa, under influence of high CO2 content of the water, showed that no escape response is stimulated by the high CO2, but instead, death results. It is therefore concluded that lowered oxygen tensions in the water (as shown by other workers) is more important as a stimulus for respiratory failure in newts than is high CO2 concentrations. This is probably because the CO2 content of natural waters does not normally accumulate to very high concentrations.
