When scientists used allometry
to calculate drag on mathematical models of different-size whales, they found that beyond lengths of 110 feet, a blue whale would not be able to close its mouth fast enough around quickly escaping prey.
Based on this, researchers investigate physiological indexes through allometry
Such variations of altitude and climate are expected to influence allometry
and also biomass productivity of G.
The analysis of the SH--TW relationships in the winged pearl oyster Pteria penguin cultivated in Sanya, Hainan, showed a prevalence of allometry
in both young and old oysters with a higher SH--TW correlation in older oysters (Fig.
is also reported for various species of Chrysichthyes in fresh water of Nigeria [2,8].
Second, we attempt to bring to light the causality behind the hierarchical allometry
of Chinese cities.
For the workers in the mature colonies, only the slope of HW is significantly steeper than 1.0, that is, the monophasic allometry
Data were linear and therefore were not transformed, but the slopes of the log-transformed relationships were calculated to determine the allometry
Proportions and allometry
in the Gray Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis.
The relation is said to be isometric when b = 3, if b < 3: the allometry
is minorant and when b > 3: the allometry
is majorant .
Subspecies and body size allometry
affect milk production and composition, and calf growth in red deer: comparison of (Cervus elaphus hispanicus) and (Cervus elaphus scoticus).
Keywords: morphometries, allometry
, growth, length-weight relationships, body condition Index
and sexual selection of male weaponry in Wellington tree weta, Hemideina crassidens.
As for the allometry

To verify that heart grows rapidly during the third trimester (positive allometry
) and to note any congenital anomalies associated with them if present.
