Abstract

The life cycle of an individual living organism involves initial growth in size and complexity, along with maintenance of its fundamental integrity until its reproductive capability is completed. In this section we shall discuss some of the feedback loops involved in such life cycles, particularly as they relate to the physiology and behavior of animals.
