Abstract. Growth trajectories of morphological characters may change during ontogeny, but this change is often overlooked or, at best, is estimated visually. An objective method was developed for determining discontinuities in morphological measurements of three species of oceanic squids: Chtenopteryxsicula (Vérany, 1851), Mastigoteuthismagna Joubin, 1913, and Brachioteuthis sp. 3. The specimens were collected on the Amsterdam Mid North Atlantic Plankton Expeditions (1980–1983) along a transect… Expand
Ontogenic changes in diel vertical migration patterns compared with known allometric changes in three mesopelagic squid species suggest an expanded definition of a paralarva
TLDR
The pad-shaped club and long neck are proposed as visual markers of the end of the paralarval phase of C. sicula and Brachioteuthis sp. Expand
Can beak shape help to research the life history of squid?
TLDR
Logarithmic spiral and deviations from spiral are proposed for investigating growth variation in upper squid beaks for investigating squid lifestyle and the method of fitting spirals and deviation from spiral growth is a quick, nondestructive complement to sectioning. Expand
Population structure of the purpleback squid Sthenoteuthis oualaniensis (Lesson, 1830) along the south-west coast of India
TLDR
The shape and size of the fins were identified to be important key features to differentiate dwarf population from the medium form of S. oualaniensis along the south-west coast of India. Expand
Relative growth of the semi-terrestrial crab Pachygrapsus marmoratus : an information-theory approach
TLDR
The patterns of allometric growth of the grapsid crab Pachygrapsus marmoratus were investigated with an information-theoretic approach and it was shown that the allometry of chelar propodus width may be used to identify puberty in males, as there is a marked breakpoint at a carapace width of ~16.0 mm. Expand
Phenotypic divergence despite high gene flow in chokka squid Loligo reynaudii (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae): implications for fishery management
TLDR
Though all four types of morphometric attributes resulted in some separation, the most consistent separation of samples from the three regions was based on soft body part morphometric characters, suggesting environmental heterogeneity and not restriction of genetic flow/isolation as the primary driver of the observed phenotypic divergence. Expand
Does the largest chela of the males of three crab species undergo an allometric change that can be used to determine morphometric maturity
TLDR
It would be advisable to base management plans for conservation on the carapace lengths at which 50% of the male crabs of these two species attain physiological maturity, i.e. 68.1 and 94.3 mm, respectively, according to the 95% confidence region of this estimate of size at morphometric maturity.

The paralarvae of two South American sympatric squid: Loligo gahi and Loligo sanpaulensis
TLDR
Size, morphometry and patterns of chromatophore abundance and distribution were characterized for hatchlings (hatching paralarvae) of these two species obtained in the laboratory after egg incubation at different temperatures. Expand
Analysis of shape variability and life history strategies of Illex argentinus in the northern extreme of species distribution as a tool to differentiate spawning groups
TLDR
The back-calculated length distributions reconstructed from daily growth increments deposited in the gladius allowed the identification of size-selective processes that may be related to different life history strategies. Expand
Feeding habits of juvenile Japanese common squid Todarodes pacificus: Relationship between dietary shift and allometric growth
TLDR
The eating habits of juvenile Japanese common squid changed from a rounded to a more streamlined shape, and only growth of the fin base length and fin width were positively allometric, suggesting that the swimming performance of T. pacificus changes markedly at around inflection points, the size at which T.pacificus starts to feed on fish. Expand
The paralarvae of two South American sympatric squid: Loligo gahi and Loligo sanpaulensis
TLDR
Size,morphometry and patterns of chromatophore abundance and distribution were characterized for hatchlings (hatching paralarvae) of these two species obtained in the laboratory after egg incubation at different temperatures. Expand

The Early Life Histories of Three Families of Cephalopods (Order Teuthoidea) and an Examination of the Concept of a Paralarva
Controversy over the validity of describing newly-hatched cephalopods as "larvae" prom pted the introduction of the term "paralarva" to describe the post hatching phase of life. This thesis examinesExpand
Relative growth of paralarvae and juveniles of Illex argentinus (Castellanos, 1960) in southern Brazil
TLDR
No morphological change, besides the proboscis division, takes place at the end of rhynchoteuthion stage, which may indicate the necessity for re-evaluation of the paralarval phase in Ommastrephidae. Expand
Application of Regression Techniques to Studies of Relative Growth in Crustaceans
TLDR
It is proposed that analysis of untransformed data with a Model II regression technique such as the reduced major axis is appropriate for description of relative growth in crustacean linear morphometric features, and that data for broad size-class samples should be examined as iteratively divided subsets, rather than assuming a priori that the entire sample is adequately represented by a single continuous function.

A new method for estimating the morphometric size at maturity of crabs
TLDR
This work demonstrates a new method of detecting changes in relative growth (or allometric) relationships and estimating morphometric size at maturity of crabs by fitting several smoothing splines to relationships between body size and claw size, selecting the "best" spline, and finding this spline's maximum second derivative.

In the very common situation where the distribution of the variates is non-normal and open-ended, a functional regression is the most appropriate one even for purposes of prediction. Expand
