Humans at high altitude: hypoxia and fetal growth.


High-altitude studies offer insight into the evolutionary processes and physiological mechanisms affecting the early phases of the human lifespan.

Multigenerational vs. shorter-term high-altitude residents are protected from the altitude… (More)
