A taxis (plural taxes / ˈ t æ k s iː z / , from the Ancient Greek τάξις , meaning "arrangement" ) is the movement of an organism in response to a stimulus such as light or the presence of food. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: A taxis is the movement of an organism in response to a stimulus such as light or the presence of food. Taxes are innate behavioural responses. A taxis differs from a tropism in that in the case of taxis, the organism has motility and demonstrates guided movement towards or away from the stimulus source. It is sometimes distinguished from a kinesis, a non-directional change in activity in response to a stimulus.
- Animal locomotion - Animal locomotion, in ethology, is any of a variety of movements or methods that animals use to move from one place to another. Some modes of locomotion are self-propelled, e.g., running, swimming, jumping, flying, hopping, soaring and gliding.
- Haptotaxis - Haptotaxis is the directional motility or outgrowth of cells, e.g. in the case of axonal outgrowth, usually up a gradient of cellular adhesion sites or substrate-bound chemoattractants.
- Mechanotaxis - Mechanotaxis refers to the directed movement of cell motility via mechanical cues. In response to fluidic shear stress, for example, cells have been shown to migrate in the direction of the fluid flow.
- Optomotor response - The optomotor response is an innate behaviour common to fish and all insects. It serves for course stabilization during free locomotion through an involuntary displacement from a straight course. The purpose of this behaviour is to regain the desired course of locomotion.
- Tropism - A tropism is a biological phenomenon, indicating growth or turning movement of a biological organism, usually a plant, in response to an environmental stimulus. In tropisms, this response is dependent on the direction of the stimulus.
