Since the most of theropod dinosaurs have a femur length greater than 10-15 cm, the kinematics of the hindlimbs of medium-big size theropod dinosaurs cannot be represented by the hindlimbs of cursorial birds.
Male: Body length, 25-26, pronotum length, 6-6.5, tegmen length, 26-29, hind femur length, 10- 15, tibial length, 12-13.
Researchers found that pregnancies in which the fetus had a short femur length also were more likely to result in delivery before 34 weeks' gestation (OR, 4.2) and small-for-gestational-age infants (OR, 4.3).
When including both [PM.sub.10] and [NO.sub.2] in the models, the inverse association for [PM.sub.10] exposure with first-trimester crown-rump length reached statistical significance, and the associations for [PM.sub.10] exposure with third-trimester head circumference and for [NO.sub.2] exposure with femur length in the second and third trimester persisted (results not shown).
femur length, biparietal diameter, head circumference and abdominal circumference were positively correlated with fetal kidney volume in our study.
maculipennis, the F/C ratio for both sexes shifted following the same trend as in true locust (i.e., being higher in what would be solitarious than would be gregarious individuals), indicating a higher relative growth of maximum head width over femur length. On the other hand, the E/F ratio is considered to be a less reliable phase indicator than the F/C ratio (Deng et al.
The risk of shoulder dystocia doubled with every unit deviation from the mean for the ratio of femur length to head circumference and the ratio of head circumference to abdominal circumference, Dr.
Pedipalps: trochanter length 4.50 (2.25), width 2.50 (1.60), femur length 9.00 (4.75), width 3.25 (2.40), patella length 9.50 (5.75), width 3.00 (2.80), tibia length 5.00 (3.00), width 2.50, tarsus length 5.00 (3.00).
Table I shows the mean and standard deviation of the measures of femur length and neck length and circumference for the right and left femurs.
In assessing the gestational age, the foetal femur length, the biparietal diameter and the abdominal circumference are taken into account usually, after 24 weeks of gestation.
Male.--Body length 23.0-26.0 mm, pronotum length 8.5 mm, tegmen length 14.0 mm, femur length 13.3 mm (Figs 11, 12).
Biometry in the 2nd trimester can be done by measuring Biparietal Diameter (BPD), Fetal Femur Length (FL) and Abdominal Circumference (AC).
