WHAT DOES THERMOTAXIS MEAN IN ENGLISH?
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 can migrate along amazingly shallow temperature gradients of less than 0.1C/cm and sometimes as low as 0.001C/cm. Theoretical analysis indicates that even this impressive feat is far from pushing the limits set by thermal noise. The natural environment always contains temperature gradients that organisms could respond to, if it were useful. The response of the slime mold and nematode is complicated and thought to allow them to move toward an appropriate level in soil. Recent research suggests that mammalian sperm employ thermotaxis to move to an appropriate location in the female's oviduct.

Metzner ( 1 920) described a clear thermotaxis in spirilla, whereas other bacteria
have been found not to be thermotactic (Reimers, 1928). The response is a
typical phobic one: decreasing temperatures result in a reversal of movement.
