Oxygen Grabbers?

Post by Coraleen212 » Thu Feb 09, 2006 2:42 pm

Does anyone know (or know where I can find) any information about organisms that are 'oxygen grabbers'? As far as I know, they are animals that live where there is a low partial pressure of oxygen (eg. up mountains). And their haemoglobin structure is somehow different in order to cope with less oxygen available. Any help much appreciated :)
