Allometric growth pattern and body shape changes of the Green terror (Andinoacara rivulatus)(Cichlidae) were studied using landmark-based geometric morphometric (GM) and traditional methods, from hatching up to 1266 Hours Post Hatching (HPH) under culture conditions. The left side of specimens were photographed using digital camera and morphometric characters, including total length, head length, tail length, trunk length, eye diameter, snout length and body depth were measured using ImageJ…

The morphological study of transcaspian marinka (Schizothorax pelzami) in Harirud and Dasht-e Kavir basins using the geometric morphometric technique
The main differences in body shape of the studied populations were related to the position of the snout, the depth of head and body, and the length of caudal peduncle, which can be considered to be an adaptation to their habitat, which has been influenced by different environmental parameters.
Analysing morphological variation of appendages and labrum in 10 species of Heterocypris Claus, 1893 (Podocopida : Cyprididae) with additional description of Heterocypris exigua
Abstract. Natural selection can lead to speciation, but its effects depend on amount of morphological variation within populations. In Ostracoda, the appendages enclosed within the calcified carapace
Embryonic development of the rabbit fish Siganus rivulatus and allometric growth patterns during yolk sac larvae stage produced by hormone-induced broodstock
The present work studied the embryonic development of the laboratory reared Siganus rivulatus from eggs to yolk sac larval stage after high dose of hormonal induction with LHRHa injection as the best dose for egg quality.
A modified staining protocol to study early development of Rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1792) skull
The detection of cartilages and bones helps to understand the ontogeny of fish skeletal structure and the effects of environmental factors on bone density and plasticity and to conduct a survey on specific factors to change the skeletal tissues.
Sex Differences in Mate Choice Preference Characteristics of Aequidens rivulatus
Simple Summary Generally, animals prefer mating with partners of the opposite sex with specific features, which suggests that animals tend to choose mates with particular phenotypic traits. However,


Development and allometric growth patterns during early larval stages of the spotted sand bass Paralabrax maculatofasciatus (Percoidei: Serranidae)
The hypothesis of differential growth patterns for primary functions during early ontogeny, supported by changes in ontogenetic priorities related to developmental stages of the spotted sand bass, is supported.
Correspondence between Ontogenetic Shifts in Morphology and Habitat Use in Minnow Phoxinus Phoxinus
The morphology of minnows Phoxinus phoxinus from two rivers at the south-east of England was analysed on mensural characters and qualitative traits (occurrence of appendages, pattern of pigmentation and scalation) and bivariate and multivariate analysis revealed that allometric growth occurs occasionally during ontogeny.
Morphological development and allometric growth patterns in hatchery-reared California halibut larvae
Morphological development, allometric growth and behaviour of hatchery-reared California halibut Paralichthys californicus were studied from hatching to metamorphosis (42 days post hatch, dph) at
Correspondence between shape and feeding habit changes throughout ontogeny of gilthead sea bream Sparus aurata L., 1758
It is shown that the growth profile of early stages is mainly determined by organogenesis of important apparati, whereas that of later stages seems optimized to improve feeding on hard prey in complex microhabitat and swimming abilities, and to reduce predation risk.
Allometric growth in green sturgeon larvae
The allometric growth of green sturgeon matched developmental and behavioural events observed in early ontogeny of this threatened species.
Larval growth patterns in Cyprinus carpio and Clarias gariepinus with attention to the finfold
Growth patterns of morphological characteristics related to these three functions were studied in two species of Ostariophysian teleosts: African catfish Clarias gariepinus and common carp Cyprinus carpio, confirming that larval growth shows different phases.
Ontogeny and allometric plasticity of Dentex dentex (Osteichthyes: Sparidae) in rearing conditions
The normal development of D. dentex was seriously affected by the rearing conditions applied during the early exotrophic phase, and the two differently reared populations followed similar developmental patterns of general morphology, pigmentation and behaviour, but they presented high developmental plasticity where allometric growth was concerned.
Visualizing allometry: Geometric morphometrics in the study of shape changes in the early stages of the two‐banded sea bream, Diplodus vulgaris (Perciformes, Sparidae)
Geometric morphometrics has been used to characterize shape changes during early juvenile life of the sea bream and implies the definition of a new space for biological shapes in which shape trends and clusters can also be identified in relation to nonmorphological variables.
Early development and allometric growth patterns in Siberian sturgeon and their ecological significance
The positive allometry of the head for feeding, sensorial and respiratory functions, and the tail for reducing costs of transport, routine swimming and escape reactions from predators confirmed the hypothesis that growth patterns of early life stages closely match specific needs.
The subject of allometry is variation in morphometric variables or other features of organisms associated with variation in size. Such variation can be produced by several biological phenomena, and
