alletteratus showed a negative allometry
, In addition, the variability of morphometric as well as meristic characters of E.
for sacral traits in females suggested that selection may be acting on trunk, because wider pelvic girdle would increase the space available for eggs.
2005) reported isometric growth in juveniles and positive allometry
in adults, and Hirose & Negreiros-Fransozo (2007) found positive growth in both juveniles and adults.
The slope of the log-transformed relationship is defined as the allometry
The minorant growth allometry
of the length weight relation-ship for the whole population agrees with results of other studies (Table 4 and 5).
pattern for each parameter was established by testing the slope (b) of the regression equations against isometry ([H.
Growth of the cardiac measurements and fetal parameters were explored by allometry
and linear regression analysis.
1999) studied allometry
in wool breed lambs and found that both shoulder and hindquarter were isogonic in relation to cold carcass weight, corroborating the results obtained in this work.
and functional constraints on proboscis lengths in butterflies.
The ontogeny and adult allometry
of Pseudagnostus merit study because the genus persists across a Late Cambrian extinction boundary.
The constant of allometry
"b = 3" was determined for each parameter by using power function Y= axb and the equations were linearized by logarithmic transformation.
Linear regressions of RWs against log10 centroid size indicate significant allometry
for all four axes (Fig.
