Behaviour of Micro-organisms: Based on the Proceedings of by A. Perez-Miravete

By A. Perez-Miravete

Organisms are continuously being bombarded by way of stimuli of their envi­ ronment (and additionally by means of inner stimuli), and a typical approach of responding is via stream. this can be a side of irritability, or excitability, or behaviour. reaction to stimuli through flow is located in all organisms: it represents one of many universalities of biology. but on the molecular point it really is one of many least understood of organic phenomena. Micro-organisms aren't any exception. If motile, they reply to stimuli by means of energetic stream (taxis); if sessile, they reply through development pursuits (tropisms). Responses by means of circulate are identified between micro-organisms to such stimuli as chemical compounds, electrical present, gravity, gentle, temperature, contact, and vibrations. The behaviour of micro-organisms is a thrilling topic, firstly for its personal sake, but also since it may possibly demonstrate proof and ideas which are acceptable to figuring out behaviour in additional advanced organisms (even us) and since it could actually, aid to appreciate the circulate of cells and tissues in the course of differentiation and improvement of upper crops and animals.

Example text

However, many authors, even recently (Dryl 1961 a, Rosen 1962, Jahn and Bovee 1968, Dryl and Grebecki 1966), still use the traditional term "chemotaxis" to describe the non-directed movements of protozoa towards external chemical stimuli. 2. Mechanism of Chemotaxis Depending upon the speCies of animals under study, the normal progressive locomotion of the ciliate protozoa is based on the action of various locomotor CHEMOTAXI S Il\' CILlAT L 1 J' ; UTOZOA ,v Figure 3. 8.
