Robustness and time-scale hierarchy in biological systems
1999 (English)In: Biosystems (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0303-2647, E-ISSN 1872-8324, Vol. 50, no 1, 71-82 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This study addresses the issue of robustness of biological systems with respect to microscopic parameters, especially the emergence of robustness as a consequence of lime-scale hierarchy, applying naive thermodynamic and dynamic assumptions. Theoretical considerations of how the time-scale hierarchy can decouple physiological regulatory mechanisms are illustrated by two model systems involving the photosynthetic apparatus of green plants.
