Amoeba, Paramecium  3. 4. Skin Respiration      - Aquatic, multi-cellular, still small (2-3 cell  layers) - Small and have low metabolic rates - Ventilation by movement  5. Flatworm, Hydra 6. 7. Internal Trachea System     - Terrestrial, small with lower metabolic rates - Holes called SPIRALES which connect to a  network of air tubes called TRACHE 8. Insects 9. 10. External Gills     - Aquatic, multicellular - Higher metalbolic rates - High sureface area of the gills - Slight ventilation by movement  11. Salamander 12. 13.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
