Different levels of organization distinguished by characteristics spatial dimensions, Ec, and relaxation times, Tr, of biological processes ranging from electron transport in energy transduction to growth of microbial and plant cells, are shown to be related through a relation that may be interpreted as allometric and characterized by two different slopes. Processes, at levels of organization occurring in spatial dimensions of micrometers and relaxing in the order of minutes, delimit a… CONTINUE READING
