Orientation of the photosynthetic flagellate,Peridinium gatunense, in hypergravity


The photosynthetic freshwater flagellate,Peridinium gatunense, uses both positive phototaxis and negative gravitaxis to move upwards in the water column. At higher fluence rates approaching those at the surface of their habitat, the cells tend to become unoriented and thus stop their upward movement. Orientation and motility ofPeridinium gatunense has been… (More)
