Abstract

A proposed Neoclassical growth theory of micro-organisms is shown to apply in a much wider variety of cases, from microlevel organisms via animal and human cell growth and up to the macro-level populations encountered in ecology. Including the metabolic mass transfer effects, that are an essential ingredient of the Neoclassical Theory, allows for the recovery of substantial and distinct phenomena observed experimentally. The proposed theory identifies the mechanism controlling the Lag phase, a result that holds impressive future potential in diverse applications. Different theoretical results are presented and compared with experimental data to substantiate the claim that the model based on the Neoclassical Growth Theory is the only available model that produces results, which are consistent with all experimental evidence.
