Maia is the tale of an concept, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that gives a cybernetic interpretation of ways development is managed. development on the lowest point is managed through regulating the speed of development. entry to the output of keep an eye on mechanisms is equipped by way of perturbing the becoming organism, after which filtering out the implications to progress cost. The output of the expansion keep watch over mechanism is then obtainable 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 progress. The account starts with an creation to cybernetics overlaying the law of development and inhabitants raise in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the keep watch over of development techniques. This e-book is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic progress, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
