Linear relationship between temperature and uptake of oxygen in Euglena gracilis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

CHANGES in incubation temperature result in changes in the growth rate, the dry weight and the length of the lag phase of the growth cycle of streptomycin-bleached Euglena gracilis1. It appears that, within limits, low temperatures favour protoplasmic growth whereas high temperatures favour cell division. It was considered of interest to extend these observations to an investigation of the effects of various incubation temperatures on the rate of respiration of Euglena.
