Describing Cryptobiosis as a Time Based Protection System Using Petri Nets
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Engineering, Department of Systems and Software Engineering2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Cryptobiosis represents the state of a living organism when it shows no visible signs of metabolic life, but maintains a capacity to return to an active, metabolic state. This peculiar state, although known from a wide variety of organisms, has received little attention from a theoretically biological perspective. A description based on a Petri net setting and a time based security model is proposed. In order to protect against a prolonged exposure time, the pathways for chemical reactions involved must fulfil their actions during a limited detection and response time to fulfil the protected state of entering/leaving cryptobiosis.
