Explain respiration in grasshopper

Asked by ayushsagar | 18th May, 2010, 11:18: AM

Expert Answer:

In grasshopper, respiration is performed using air-filled tubes called tracheae, which open at the surfaces of the thorax and abdomen through pairs of spiracles. The spiracle valves only open to allow oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange. The tracheoles, found at the end of the tracheal tubes, are insinuated between cells and carry oxygen throughout the body.
