Hi Gretchen:
You asked about the volume of air taken into the lungs of different
mammals. That's a great question, but unfortunately I dont know the
answer. The answer will certainly be in some obscure scientific textbook
on respiration, but you'd have to go to a good university library to find
it. Is there one near you? Maybe your parents could take you. Many
universities now have catalogs which can be searched via computer.
I'll check one book I know on whales, which might just have something like
this; if I find anything I'll let you know.
You moght also search on the Web for mammalian respiration; if you can find
something, you may be able to email a specialist in this field.
