The relationship between multidimensional form of the adult mouse mandible and body size is examined from an ontogenetic perspective. The origin and ontogeny of phenotypic correlations are described in terms of genetic and environmental covariance patterns between adult skeletal morphology and growth in body weight. Different ontogenetic patterns are… (More)
The underlying determination of phenotypic variability and covariability is described for 14 traits that define the morphological size and shape of the mature mouse mandible. Variability is partitioned into components due to direct additive and dominance genetic effects, indirect maternal additive genetic effects, genetic covariance between direct additive… (More)
The health care environment is frequently described as hyperturbulent and information intensive. However, is the health care systems environment significantly different from the information systems environment in other industries? Are the methodologies and frameworks developed within the context of Information Systems research applicable to Health… (More)
