Method P.118 right column bottom paragraph: "To allow calculation of the Production component of the budget equation, a measure of the total protoplasmic volume produced over the cell cycle was required. The cellular volume of an Amoeba was established to double over the generation cycle (Fig. 1), therefore, by compressing newly divided daughter cells, an estimate of the total production was found, i.e. it was assumed that the volume of protoplasm produced over a generation was equivalent to that of a daughter cell."
