  1. Hypercomplexity.Vic Norris, Armelle Cabin & Abdallah Zemirline - 2005 - Acta Biotheoretica 53 (4):313-330.
    What is biological complexity? How many sorts exist? Are there levels of complexity? How are they related to one another? How is complexity related to the emergence of new phenotypes? To try to get to grips with these questions, we consider the archetype of a complex biological system, Escherichia coli. We take the position that E. coli has been selected to survive adverse conditions and to grow in favourable ones and that many other complex systems undergo similar selection. We invoke (...)

  • The Role of Calcium in the Recall of Stored Morphogenetic Information by Plants.Marie-Claire Verdus, Camille Ripoll, Vic Norris & Michel Thellier - 2012 - Acta Biotheoretica 60 (1-2):83-97.
    Flax seedlings grown in the absence of environmental stimuli, stresses and injuries do not form epidermal meristems in their hypocotyls. Such meristems do form when the stimuli are combined with a transient depletion of calcium. These stimuli include the “manipulation stimulus” resulting from transferring the seedlings from germination to growth conditions. If, after a stimulus, calcium depletion is delayed, meristem production is also delayed; in other words, the meristem-production instruction can be memorised. Memorisation includes both storage and recall of information. (...)
