Scientific articles from research projects involving the RESPICOND respirometer between 1986-2017. This list is not complete as a number of articles written could have escaped our notice and small number could be erroneously included. If you know of articles that should be included or excluded, please let us know. It is getting difficult to keep up with the publication of new articles. The number of Respicond instruments is getting large.
