By Tony Stebbing

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 by way of regulating the speed of progress. entry to the output of keep watch over mechanisms is supplied via perturbing the starting to be 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 modeling. Perturbation experiments were used to supply interpretations of hormesis, the neutralization of inhibitory load and purchased tolerance to poisonous inhibition, and catch-up progress. The account starts off with an creation to cybernetics protecting the rules of development and inhabitants bring up in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the keep watch over of progress strategies. This ebook is appropriate for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic development, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
