A Physicochemical Theory of Tip Growth

A Physicochemical Theory of Tip Growth presents the latest information on experimental observations on living organisms, including unicellular algae, hyphae and neurons. These theories are analogous to the ones developed for the growth of nonliving matter, as already exposed by the author in the book. Presents the theory of growth and form of nonliving matter Provides discussions on simple, unstable flat or spherical shapes which restabilize in more robust pointed shapes Includes characteristics that are typical of the morphogenesis of living matter

Growth and Fonn is the title of a famous book written by D' Arcy Thomson at the beginning of the century. It relates a large number of problems of shapes of bodies either in the physical world or the biological realm. Keywords in this field are shapes, spirals, growth law, gravity field, surface tension, scaling laws, diffusion and mechanical efficiency. This field is the source of a considerable amount of work, even today, and this conference was a place where

Tip growth is a type of cellular growth that is represented in many and diverse cell types, which are important to plant breeding (pollen tubes), agriculture (root hairs) and plant and animal pathology (fungal hyphae). Also moss and fern protonemata as well as algal zygotes and yeasts exhibit the features unique for tip growth: directable apical linear growth which renders the cell able to penetrate its growth environment. In this volume various cell biological aspects of this particular growth phenomenon
