DescriptionPhysiology occurs tn physical space through chemical reactions constrained by anatomy and morphology, yet guided by genetics. Physiology has been called the logic of life. Genes encode structural and fimcdonal proteins. These proteins are subsequently processed to produce enzymes that direct and govern the biomechanical processes involved in the physiology of the plants. The enzymes do the work of the plant in a controlled, coordinated manner so that life can continue and development can proceed.
