This lecture is concerned with the energetics of a multicellular system during controlled morphogenesis. The system referred to is mainly the mustard seedling performing photo-morphogenesis. The controlling factor is the active phytochrome Pfr (operationally, continuous far-red light, cf. 4th lecture).
