Dear Ronn,
You'll find some fascinating results in:

Ho, M.W. (1993). The Rainbow and the Worm: The Physics of Organisms.
Singapore: World Scientific.

Ho, M.W., A. French, J. Haffegee & P.T. Saunders (1994). Can weak magnetic
fields (or potentials) affect pattern formation? In: M.W. Ho, F.A. Popp &
U. Warnke (eds.), Bioelectrodynamics and Biocommunication, Singapore: World
Scientific, p. 195-212.

Ho, M.W., T.A. Stone, I. Jerman, J. Bolton, H. Bolton, B.C. Goodwin, P.T.
Saunders & F. Robertson (1992b). Brief exposures to weak static magnetic
field during early embryogenesis cause cuticular pattern abnormalities in
Drosophila  larvae. Phys. Med. Biol.  37(5), 1171-1179.

Here are two I haven't checked out yet:

Steen, H.B. & P. Ofted (1967). Lack of effect of constant magnetic fields
on Drosophila  egg hatching time. Experientia  23, 814-?

Tegenkamp, T.R. (1964). Mutagenic effects of magnetic fields on Drosophila
melanogaster. In: M.F. Barnothy (ed.), Biological Effects of Magnetic
Fields, New York: Plenum Press, 2, ?-?.
