Title: Effect of power frequency magnetic fields on the development of Ambystoma mexicanum and Artemia franciscana Kellogg
Authors: Abdel-Hadi, Mohsen
Issue Date: 1-Sep-1997
Abstract: This thesis investigates the effects of extra low frequency magnetic fields on the development of embryos. The investigation was done by exposing a group of Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) embryos to power frequency magnetic fields and comparing the number of healthy developed ones to those of a control group. Also, brine shrimp (Artemia franciscana Kellogg) were exposed to a direct current (dc) magnetic field to investigate its effect on the axis orientation of the developed embryo. The results of both experiments indicate that above ambient levels of low frequency magnetic fields have no adverse effect on the development of either species, as measured by the parameters used.
