The effect of different partial pressures of oxygen on the survival, growth and reproduction of Caenorhabditis briggsae was investigated under axenic conditions. Small volumes of culture medium were inoculated with young larvae, equilibrated with mixtures of oxygen and nitrogen and of oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, and the development of the cultures followed under the microscope. It was concluded that growth was progressively retarded as the partial pressure of oxygen was reduced below 30 mm Hg and stopped at low levels (below about 1.2 mm Hg). The addition of carbon dioxide to the gas mixture probably retarded growth slightly.
