Satisfactory Essays
Lately there has been high volumes of amphibian deformities and decrease in amphibian population. Most reports have been anecdotal, so we want to look under natural conditions to find the facts of this problem. There are three main factors we believe are the cause, environmental pesticides, parasites, and UV-B radiation After looking at many different aspects under the laboratory conditions we found that UV-B radiation is a cause for amphibian deformities. We discovered that UV-B rays are causing embryos to hatch at lower rates and higher deformities than Embryos under UV-B shields. Those shielded also developed more quickly.
