Thermotaxis

Thermotaxis is a behavior in which an organism directs its locomotion up or down a gradient of temperature. Lab research has determined that some slime molds and small nematodes (namely Meloidogyne incognita) can migrate along amazingly shallow temperature gradients of less than 0.1C/cm and sometimes as low as 0.001C/cm. Theoretical analysis indic...
