General classification of maturation reaction-norm shape from size-based processes.

Abstract

Phenotypic plasticity of size at maturation is commonly described using size-age maturation reaction norms (MRNs). MRNs for age and size at maturation are analyzed and classified into three general categories related to different size scalings of growth and mortality. The underlying model for growth and mortality is based on processes at the level of the… (More)
