For phototaxis, one dish excluded light and was attached with a dish that let light through. In the hydrotaxis experiment, a circle was cut out of a paper towel to the diameter of the bottom of the petri dish. After it was placed it in the dish, the towel was moistened. numbers recorded >> >> ultimate results Phototaxis: Hydrotaxis errors Intro (at least one citation per statement of not common knowledge) purpose/summary In this paper I report evidence to determine if Armadillidium vulgare assorts randomly in response to phototaxis and hydotaxis.
