A drawback to using spiders in such studies is that the functional anatomy and development of the nervous systems is well characterized for only a few species (e.g., Babu, , Weltzien and Barth, ).A previous study of the spider Argiope aurantia showed that relative size of the brains of tiny spiderlings is more than 10 times that of adults, and the proportion of spiderling brain mass Cited by:

The potential use of this correlation in relative palaeotemperature inference is investigated by comparing zooid sizes in Recent material of 8 British species with those in conspecific material from the Pliocene Coralline Crag, which was deposited in warmer by: Intracolony variation in zooid size in cheilostome Bryozoans as a new technique for investigating palaeoseasonality.

Multivariate regression analysis showed that size variation among populations accounted for 66% of shape variation in females and 38% in males, suggesting that size is the most important dimension underlying shape variation among populations of P Cited by:   The geographical variation of body size (body length) of T.

PHENOTYPIC PATTERNS OF SIZE AND SHAPE IN NORTH AMERICAN KILLIFISH BY DANIEL PAUL WELSH DISSERTATION Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Biology with a concentration in Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution in the Graduate College of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Overview.

Allometry is a well-known study, particularly in statistical shape analysis for its theoretical developments, as well as in biology for practical applications to the differential growth rates of the parts of a living organism's body.

One application is in the study of various insect species (e.g., Hercules beetles), where a small change in overall body size can lead to an enormous. Mandibular shape variation among different size classes of the ant Camponotus sp.(Hymenoptera: Formicidae) Nur-Aynie B.

The comparison of carolinensis and hye- malis involves a steeper gradient of migratory effort than that found among age/sex classes of hyemalis alone. This study was conducted to determine shape differences in the mandibles of different size classes of the ant Camponotus sp.

To do this, landmarks taken from digital images of a total of sixty. External morphology is commonly used to identify bats as well as to investigate flight and foraging behavior, typically relying on simple length and area measures or ratios. However, geometric morphometrics is increasingly used in the biological sciences to analyse variation in shape and discriminate among species and populations.

Here we compare the ability of traditional versus. and were therefore interpreted as a size axis, whereas the remaining axes were interpreted as reflecting diVerent aspects of worker shape (Table 1,Fig. More than 80% of the variance was concentrated on the first PC, indicating that the rate of size variation in ants is more than five times larger than the rate of shape evolution.
