He also demonstrated the effects of activity and temperature on respiratory exchange and was the first to show that the exchange could be influenced by the nature and quantity of food ingested.... The present work was first published in Italian in 1803. It was then translated into French and published by Senebier as requested by Spallanzani before his death. Heirs of Hippocrates.
