Biological studies are often concerned with such concepts as growth rate, net assimilation rate, energy flow, and the rate of uptake of radioactive trace elements. It is easy to see that if a certain plant is growing in a way that is linear with respect to time then its growth rate is simply the growth extension for a given unit of time. This chapter is concerned with the extension of this simple measure to nonlinear type growth and other functions.
