2010 Developmental Cell  
Our results shed light on the complex transcriptional programs required for the maintenance of a dynamic and essential stem cell niche.  ...  Despite the independent evolution of multicellularity in plants and animals, the basic organization of their stem cell niches is remarkably similar.  ...  However, in contrast to animal systems, in which individual stem cell niches only supply a defined organ system during adult development, almost the entire above-ground tissue of a plant is derived from  ...

Modelling the Adaptability of Biological Systems

Eugene Ch'ng
2007 Open Cybernetics and Systemics Journal  
However, if a unified formula could be found to measure all of the factors against the preferences of each life form, its potentials for modelling open systems that require multiple external input variables  ...  Experiments using the formula in the pilot study showed characteristics of emergent behaviours as each dynamic system seeks its own ecological niche.  ...  While modelling these behavioural rules requires careful observations, a deeper problem that is being neglected is the attempt to discover a unified approach for determining the collective fitness of an  ...

Why are there so many small plants? Implications for species coexistence

2006 Journal of Ecology  
Moreover, most of the time it will be a small species that produces offspring in that space because much of the time, the size of the space and its associated resource supply will be inadequate for large  ...  A total of 9362 vascular plant stems were identified, with a total of 56 species represented, seven of which were fern species (1278 stems) (not included here).  ...

Extended criticality, phase spaces and enablement in biology

Giuseppe Longo, Maël Montévil
2013 Chaos, Solitons & Fractals  
This paper analyzes, in terms of critical transitions, the phase spaces of biological dynamics.  ...  The phase space is the space where the scientific description and determination of a phenomenon is given.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Stuart Kauffman for the very stimulating joint work that preceded this paper and the editors for their interest in "extended criticality".  ...

Agency, teleonomy and signal transduction in plant systems

Simon Gilroy, Tony Trewavas
2022 Biological Journal of the Linnean Society  
Through recurrent information exchange, growing roots construct a dynamic niche with bacterial and fungal symbionts.  ...  Convergent evolution is common and may result from the constraints of unchanging physical laws. Phenotypic plasticity initially provides a direction for evolutionary change.  ...  Throughout evolutionary time, the pattern of much plant change has been to improve the competitive facility for acquisition of these physical resources and space (Niklas, 1992) .  ...

Causality of the Relationship between Geographic Distribution and Species Abundance

Michael Krabbe Borregaard, Carsten Rahbek
2010 The Quarterly review of biology  
In this review, we suggest that much of the disparity between these hypotheses stems from differences in terminology and ecological point of view.  ...  Here, we review all the mechanisms that have been proposed to account for distribution-abundance relationships, in a framework that facilitates a comparison between them.  ...  For instance, metapopulation dynamics are expected to occur at very different time scales for a population of fruit flies than for forest trees.  ...
