In this study, the effect of Newtonian heating on the boundary layer flow and heat transfer over a stretching surface in a porous medium in the presence of gyrotactic microorganisms and nanoparticle fractions are analysed. The governing equations are reduced to a system of couple non-linear ordinary differential equations, subjected to the Boussinesq approximation and asymmetric heat conditions. The reduced governing ordinary differential equations are then solved numerically. The solutions obtained are graphically represented. The effects of the controlling parameters on the flow, heat, nanoparticle concentration and the density of motile microorganisms have been examined. The results of the present study show the flow velocity, heat and mass transfer and motile microorganism characteristics on the stretching sheet are strongly influenced by the bioconvection parameters and Newtonian.
