A few examples below show outbreaks relevant to people and their activity. Locust outbreaks are the most familiar. In terms of taxonomy, the locust is a species allied to grasshopper living in arid steppes, particularly in the steppes of Eastern Asia. In normal conditions they are not social insects, and live like ordinary grasshoppers. However, if their density becomes excessive for any reason (not quite understood as yet), they grow wings, normally reduced, and acquire the ability to fly. Then, gathering in immense swarms, they become what is called locusts, and fly to other countries, devastating vegetation, and migrate on and on as far as they eat up all food, exactly as the forest pests do.
Fig. 8. Successive stages of an outgrowth going through the vessel wall: 1 = outgrowth reaches the wall (solid line); 2 = progress stops until the outgrowth tip acquires the curvature necessary to cross the tumor/vessel interface (dashed line); 3 = the outgrowth tip overrides the vessel wall to acquire negative curvature radius (dotted line). After reaching the required curvature, the outgrowth resumes proliferation, crosses the interface and disperses into small pieces. Once the outgrowth penetrates through the vessel wall it suddenly enters a very low-density medium strongly different from the one it just left, its growth thus becomes unstable and it breaks into single cells or cell aggregates and becomes disseminated as metastases by the bloodstream throughout the organism.
7b). Then, there are two possibilities: (a) Approaching the interface from the side of tissue 1, the tumor fails to cross the interface unless some conditions are fulfilled. If the local radius Rс is smaller than R2 at the moment of the contact with tissue 2, the tumor stops proliferating until its radius reaches the value R2 and only then it starts proliferating inside tissue 2. At Rс > R2, the tumor enters freely into the neighbor tissue. Furthermore, at Rc < R0 and Rc < R0, the tumor keeps its growth unstable after it crosses the interface.
