Maia is the tale of an idea, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that offers a cybernetic interpretation of the way development is managed. progress on the lowest point is managed through regulating the speed of progress. entry to the output of keep watch over mechanisms is supplied by way of perturbing the transforming into organism, after which filtering out the results to development fee. The output of the expansion keep an eye on 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 development. The account starts off with an creation to cybernetics overlaying the legislation of development and inhabitants bring up in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the keep watch over of progress methods. This ebook is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic progress, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
