Abstract

Subterranean estuaries formed within carbonate deposits in the paleodrainage systems of Western Australia are habitats for an great diversity of stygiobitic beetles, some of which are sympatric sister species. This study examines the metabolism of stygiobiont beetles using respiration and key metabolic enzymes to determine whether sympatric sister species differ in energy allocation and respiration.
