Abstract Steady and transient behaviors of protoplasmic streaming in Nitella internodal cell have been investigated for various temperatures from 30 degrees C to near 0 degrees C. It has been found that steady velocity of the streaming linearly decreases with increasing inverse temperature but its proportionality coefficient changes at approximately 10 degrees C. Velocity distribution, which reflects temporal fluctuations of the protoplasmic streaming, is nonGaussian and its half width becomes larger at higher temperatures. On the other hand, recovery of the protoplasmic streaming, which is observed after stopping the streaming with a current stimulus to the internodal cell, has been found to show more clear sigmoidal time courses at higher temperatures.
