Surface Area, Volume and the Meaning of Life

Okay, no meaning of life here, but this new story will definitely try to tackle the relationship between surface area and volume in biological systems. If cellular respiration was an unlikely topic for a story, this might be turning the unlikely dial up to ’11.’ We’ll give it a shot. In my opinion, this is a big idea in biology and I stress it early and often in my general biology course. Keep me posted with thoughts, ideas and corrections.
