Chick embryos and their organs were weighed in order to compare retarded growth with accelerated growth. Growth was quickened by incubating eggs in 60% O2/40% N2 and slowed by covering part of the shell of eggs incubated in air. A control group was incubated in air without any covering. At two-day intervals from the twelfth to the eighteenth days inclusive, eggs were opened and the embryos dissected and weighed. An organ was 'spared' if it differed from its control weight proportionately less… CONTINUE READING
