Description

Global surface temperatures have been rising alarmingly over recent centuries due to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Some of the largest temperature effects have been found at the poles and in mountain regions such as the Himalayas where new higher altitude habitat is potentially available for insect populations. While other studies have examined low oxygen effects on development, we are aware of none that have examined the effects of low pressure; low levels of oxygen (hypoxia) typically stimulate the adaptive expression of hypoxia inducible factor genes (HIFs).

Hypobaria and Hypoxia Exert Separate Effects on HIF Expression in Drosophila melanogaster
