Effect of mutations on C. elegans TTCs. a Thermal reaction norms of swimming behavior for 58 C. elegans genetic mutant strains (gray and red lines) and two wildtype strains (black line = N2, dashed line = CB4856). All worms reared at 23 °C; 17–36 individuals included in calculations at each assay step for each strain (Table 1). TTCs for subsets of mutant strains with sensory disruptions from (a) are shown for strains with similar or higher paralysis threshold temperatures than wild-type (b) and strains with lower paralysis temperatures than wild-type (c)
