Allometry describes the effect of size change on aspects of an organism’s form and can be used to summarize the developmental history of growing parts of an animal. By comparing how allometric growth differs between species, it is possible to reveal differences in their pathways of development. The ability to compare and categorize developmental change… CONTINUE READING
