One of the most fascinating abnormalities exhibited by protoplasm is the development of autonomous or self-governing tumors which do not limit themselves in size (Fig. 9-1). They contrast with the neat, regular, highly architectured galls caused by mites and wasps. These galls require the continued presence of the causal agent and are self-limiting in size and shape (Figs. 9-2, 9-3).
