Abstract: The effects of water height, temperature, and light intensity on the movements of the marine annelid Cirriformia spiribrancha were investigated. Of these three environmental factors, only changes in water height elicited movement in C. spirabrancha in that the worms only reacted to an absence of water on their tentacles and body.
