With a new type of Warburg flask the Respiratory Quotient of Panagrellus redivivus was determined as 0.734 ± 0.028. Carbon dioxide fixation was equivalent to 2.3% of oxygen consumption. This does not raise the "corrected" value enough to make it representative of the R.Q. expected on complete oxidation of the food materials of yeast. The glyoxylate cycle may help to account for the deficiency in CO2 production. Calculations based on data in the literature suggest that free-living worms carry on CO2 fixation at a relative rate of 2% of O2 consumption, tapeworms at 11 %, and animal-parasitic nematodes at 21 to 24%.
