Reaction-diffusion theory for pattern formation is considered in relation to processes of biological development in which there is continuous growth and shape change as each new pattern forms. This is particularly common in the plant kingdom, for both unicellular and multicellular organisms. In addition to the feedbacks in the chemical dynamics, there is then another loop linking size and shape changes with the reaction-diffusion patterning of growth controllers in the growing region.
