On Growth and Form: Biological Energy

I just picked up John Whitfield’s In the Beat of a Heart: Life, Energy, and the Unity of Nature, whose book flap says the following:

Scientists have recently discovered a unifying principle that joins all life on Earth, and that unifying principle is based on energy. Visionary biologists have advanced a new theory that explains how all the living creatures of the world–from the tiny amoeba to the vast  rain forest–are constructed, providing a fresh perspective on the essential interconnectivity of living systems.

I am very excited about this book–it is very much in line with my concept of energonomics.  I’ll share the insights I learn as I work my way through it.
