Heat resistance of clones of Paramecium caudatum taken from various natural populations



Heat resistance of clones of Paramecium caudatum taken from various natural populations



Vestnik Leningr Univ Ser Biol 21(1): 107-112



Fifty-nine stocks of Paramecium caudatum from 4 populations cultivated at 25[degree]C for 3 mos. differed in their heat resistance even within the limits of 1 population. Heat resistance was measured by death-rates of animals at 40[degree]C. Differences of average heat resistance values were found for 3 populations. Inasmuch as the difference among populations is displayed after a lapse of 3 months of cultivation in standardized conditions, heat resistance is probably hereditary and dependent on genetic features of stocks and populations.
