Meta-analyses on sub-lethal effects of hypoxia

Submitted by editor on 13 January 2017.Get the paper!

Findings from this meta-analysis, led by graduate students Allison Hrycik (@ahrycik) and Zoe Almeida (@almeida_zoe), suggest that the biologically relevant threshold of hypoxia for fish is 4.5 mg/l of dissolved oxygen. This is higher than the ‘typical’ definition of hypoxic conditions (2.0 mg/l of dissolved oxygen). While developing this paper, the co-authors spent so much time talking about meta-analyses, and bothered their officemates so much, that they took to online-chatting from desks right across from one another.
