Abstract

The Oxygen Limitation Hypothesis is a theory that increased oxygen surrounding embryos in development can combat the effects of thermal stress temperatures. When an embryo is subjected to thermal stress temperatures, cranial malformations develop and survival rate goes down. Research has shown that an increased oxygen supply surrounding the embryos during development will combat the effects of thermal stress, in that it will decrease cranial malformations and increase the survival rate.
