Transformations of dynamical systems and organismic structures are discussed in terms of adjoint, simple adjoint and weak adjoint functors of organismic supercategories during development and evolution of organisms on markedly different timescales. A representation of nuclear transplants in terms of adjoint functors and a novel interpretation of nuclear transplant experiments is proposed. Three new theorems are proven for adjoint dynamical systems representing multi-potent developing cells and additional results are obtained for weak adjoint systems such as differentiated (specialized) cells.
