All organisms respond to their environment. And there are different categories of response: plants and bacteria exhibit tropisms; other organisms exhibit simple reflexes where there’s a single preprogrammed response to a specific stimulus; and still other organisms have emotions that don’t dictate any stereotyped response but instead set a goal to pursue.

Hi, Andrew—Why not use separate sentences?

  • All organisms respond to their environment. And there are different categories of response. Plants and bacteria exhibit tropisms. Other organisms exhibit simple reflexes where there’s a single preprogrammed response to a specific stimulus. Still other organisms have emotions that don’t dictate any stereotyped response but instead set a goal to pursue.

I deleted the "and" in "and still." All the other changes are to punctuation.
