Plant Cytomechanics and Its Relationship to the Development of Form
What is the relationship between cellular mechanics and the development of form in organisms? We see from the chapters in this book that the cell is rich in ultrastructural machinery which performs various kinds of tasks within the cell; organizing subcellular components, contributing to directional transport, and in some cases controlling the shape and morphology of individual cells.
