We use a little hammer to fix the dorsal hump (the big bump on your nose).
The secondary effects of these changes include a relative dorsal hump as a result of decreased tip projection, and a longer nose as a result of lobular depression and derotation.
A substantial decrease in the dorsal hump prominence, along with physician and patient satisfaction with the new tip position, indicates that the patient is a good candidate.
Aedeagus with elongate dorsal hump at base, longer than ventral arm; distal arm short; apical plate forms oval ring perpendicular to distal arm with spines on right side continuing along the u-shaped apex.
Dorsal hump at base of aedeagus short and wide, angled toward posterior.
Distal part of aedeagus more elongate than in other species in complex, only slightly curved, with base and dorsal hump small in relation to it.
The dorsal hump, formed by a bar of cartilage under the skin, may shield against attack from competitors and block access of competitors to ovipositing females.
We studied the success of these individuals in relation to morphological characters directly involved in competition, including body size and secondary sexual characters (hooked snout, dorsal hump, and breeding coloration), and characters important in swimming performance (fins and caudal peduncle).
Somatic weight, snout length, body length, coloration, dorsal hump height, anal and dorsal fin bases, and caudal-peduncle depth were available for each individual in the experiments.
However, wild females had significantly greater expression of the secondary sexual characters than hatchery females, and wild males had greater expression than hatchery males, though only the hooked snout and dorsal hump were significantly different by sequential Bonferroni tests for multiple comparisons (controlled for somatic weight; table 1, fig.
