By Stebbing

Maia is the tale of an concept, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that offers a cybernetic interpretation of the way development is managed. development on the lowest point is managed through regulating the speed of development. entry to the output of keep watch over mechanisms is equipped through perturbing the transforming into organism, after which filtering out the results to progress fee. The output of the expansion keep an eye on mechanism is then available for interpretation and modelling. Perturbation experiments were used to supply interpretations of hormesis, the neutralization of inhibitory load and bought tolerance to poisonous inhibition, and catch-up development. The account starts with an advent to cybernetics masking the rules of development and inhabitants bring up in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the keep watch over of development approaches. This publication is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic progress, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
