The Vortex of Life: Nature’s Patterns in Space and Time
When The Vortex of Life was first published in 1993, Lawrence Edwards’s pioneering work on bud shapes had already attracted the attention of many scientists around the world. In the book, Edwards gave a fuller account of his research, widening it to include the forms of plants, embryos and organs such as the heart.
His work suggests that there are universal laws, not yet fully understood, which guide an organism’s growth into predetermined patterns. His work has profound implications for those working in genetics and stem-cell research.
