On Growth and Form, the classic by the great D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson provides the general inspiration for this book. D'Arcy was not one to run with the herd; he was an original thinker and brilHant classicist, mathematician and physicist, who provided a source of fresh air to developmental biology by examining growth and form in the light of physics and mathematics, courageously ignoring chemistry and genetics. Despite this omission of what are now regarded as the main sciences in understanding growth and form, D'Arcy's message is not in the least bit impaired. Instead, in today's biochemistry dominant world D'Arcy's work highlights, as it did in his own time, the role physics plays in growth and form. This book takes its name from D'Arcy's magnum opus and hopes to do it justice. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
