BBACONID anoxia experiments were performed as a logical sequel to investigations with ingested chemical protectors1. In both cases, damage was assessed by scoring the eggs produced per unit of time and the larvæ emerging therefrom. Eggs are dispensed in exact order from the single developmental series identical for each of the four ovarioles. This feature makes it possible to correlate quantitative modifications in the number of eggs, and their hatchability, with the cellular state at the time of irradiation.
