Application notes  on respirometery of living  organisms

I collected a number of published papers and application notes from
different fields of biology in which researches used Columbus Instruments’
"Micro-Oxymax" Respirometer  to Measure O2 consumption and CO2 production.
 For example following  subjects are described:

In dermatology:
Cutaneous Respiration, effects of cosmetics on the rate of diffusion of O2
and CO2. 
In entomology:  Respiration Of A Fly Larva (Sarcopaga Crassipalpis).
In food science:  Detection Of Bacillus Cereus T In Milk,
   Mold Growth In Chicken Feed,
   Respiration Of A Fertile Chicken Egg.
  Yeast contamination in fruit juice
In bioremediation field:  Replacing Sturm Test (OECD-301-B) By CO2
   Treatment Creosote Contaminated Soil.
In agriculture: Respiration And Physiochemical Changes Of Harvested Olive
Oxygen Consumption Of Potato (bruised and non bruised), Oxidation Of
