That temperature has a direct and significant effect upon growth of organisms is sufficiently well established, not only for Protozoa, but for other kinds of organisms. The measurement of the effect of temperature, however, is not always simple to achieve. When, in the course of setting up controls for another experiment, it became necessary to determine the capacity for growth of Euplotes woodruffi at several temperatures and pH conditions, not all of the difficulties that were actually encountered were anticipated.
