klinokinesisKlinokinesis (ger.)

  • A form of kinesis in which changes of direction are more common the stronger the stimulus. For example, the flatworm (Dendrocoelum lacteum) increases its rate of turning as light intensity increases. Consequently it tends to spend less time in light places, and tends to form aggregations in dark places. (Oxford Dict. of Animal Behaviour 2006)
