On the organismal scale, gravitational forces provide directional cues for plant and fungal growth ( gravitropism ), orientation cues for animal migrations, and influence the biomechanics and size of animals. [108] Ecological traits, such as allocation of biomass in trees during growth are subject to mechanical failure as gravitational forces influence the position and structure of branches and leaves. [180] The cardiovascular systems of animals are functionally adapted to overcome pressure and gravitational forces that change according to the features of organisms (e.g., height, size, shape), their behaviour (e.g., diving, running, flying), and the habitat occupied (e.g., water, hot deserts, cold tundra). [181] Climatic and osmotic pressure places physiological constraints on organisms, especially those that fly and respire at high altitudes, or dive to deep ocean depths.

Here is Emerson, in his Notebooks, describing how language and nature, linked through metaphor, produce pleasure in the observer's imagination: "The metamorphosis of Nature shows itself in nothing more than this, that there is no word in our language that cannot become typical of Nature by giving it emphasis.
