Comments "For the great majority of bacteria, normal swimming speeds are below 100µm/sec, with most of them below 50µm/sec. Speeds measured in T. majus represent more than a threefold increase over the bacterial record and fall near the top of the unicellular eucaryotic velocities (Table 2)." See notes beneath table
