6.3 Directing the growth cone

The growth of the growth cone has been likened to the progress of a climber. The climber can only go where there are satisfactory hand and foot-holds and where progress is not blocked by physical obstacles (e.g. overhangs or ice). Furthermore, the climber is looking ahead for the best routes, from the current position to the top. Likewise the filopodia on the growth cones are extending outwards, adhering to the best holds and avoiding physical obstacles (e.g. bone or cartilage). This contact-

1.3 Coal-forming environments today

Coal formation begins with preservation of waterlogged plant remains to produce peat and then slow compression as the peat is buried. About 10 m of peat will compress down to form about 1 m of coal; clearly large amounts of plant debris must be available for preservation. Even so, for a significant thickness of peat to accumulate there must be a balance between the growth of plants and the decay of underlying dead material to form peat (a process known as humification).
