Abstract. Mathematics, specifically the mathematics of diffusion and reaction, has been successfully applied to give us important, fundamental understandings of the way many biological processes work. In this talk, I will give a brief overview of some of these important insights, as they apply to the signals, patterns and measurements without which biological organisms could not exist or survive.
