Few cells agree to the stereotype of the round blob swiftly scribbled on chalkboards and, unfortunately, occasionally even displayed prominently in textbooks. in its place, actual cells show a awesome measure of structural and practical asymmetry. In smooth mobilephone organic parlance, this asymmetry has turn out to be lumped lower than the overall heading of "cell polarity".

G. as for the Thames Barrier. The aim here is to encourage thought about models at various levels, through a review of their scope and limitations, so as to encourage their deliberate and more effective use. Smith The essence of any model is that it should represent the real world. For the seas, this should be in a reduced and probably quite different form, which nevertheless accurately epitomizes the question in hand. There is perhaps a growing association of ‘model’ with ‘computer calculation’ but it is useful to take a wider view, to lead on from the initial conceptual model and to embrace other forms more appropriate when there are data but there is little theory, for example.
