Organisms tend to exhibit phenotypes that can be shaped by climate, commonly demonstrating clinal variations along latitudinal gradients. In vertebrates, air temperature plays a major role in shaping body size in both ectothermic and endothermic animals. However, additional small-scale environmental factors can also act as selection pressures in the marine ecosystem (e.g. primary productivity), evidencing multi-scale processes acting on marine organisms. In this study, we tested Bergmann's rule… CONTINUE READING
