Incubating quail embryos in a magnetic field resulted in accelerated somite growth. Twenty % of the experimental embryos in one series of experiments exhibited reversed torsion. The heterogenous magnetic field as opposed to the homogenous magnetic field was more effective in causing these effects. The theory of magnetic action on a biological system is discussed.
