  • Large/numerous to provide a large surface area; across which large amounts of gases diffuse;
  • Moist surfaces to dissolve respiratory gases; so as to diffuse.  
  • Made of a thin epithelium to reduce diffusion distance;
  • Highly vascularized to carry away respiratory gases thus creating a steep diffusion gradient.
