[Alan H Cheetham; Douglas M Lorenz] -- Although zooid size and shape have long been used in comparative studies of cheilostome bryozoans, procedures for measuring these properties have been little investigated.

Physical laws and forces also specify that form be adapted to the requirements of size (surface/volume relationships) and space (close packing criteria). Among inductive studies of ontogeny and phylogeny   historical passages are among the most compelling parts of his book.

He commits a minor error, though, in this section in his curious mixing of lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic units (e.g., his reference to the ‘Dicynodon Zone’ of the Beaufort Group on p. ) and treating both as units of :// A vertical stress is redirected laterally to varying extents depending on packing structure, which in turn depends on size and shape distributions of grains.

Granular materials exhibit a nonlinear stress-strain relationship because as stress increases, particle packing changes, resulting in more contacts and increased rigidity (Duran ).

(For example, the extinct Irish elk (Megaceros giganteus) was the largest of all cervids (*Cervidae), but its antlers were times larger than would be predicted from its body size, and reached an adult span of up to m in the largest individuals.) Static allometry refers to shifts in proportion among a series of related taxa of different   Within a well-defined monophyletic taxon, Formicidae (ants), we analyzed how brain size scales to body size.

An analysis of brain allometry for individuals of a highly polymorphic leaf-cutter ant, Atta colombica, shows that allometric coefficients differ significantly for small ( mg body mass) versus large individuals (b = and In that time, 2, birds were sampled.

Large Size Even though large size offers many clear advantages to reef-builders, only limited evidence is available to assess how colony size has changed through the history of the reef-builders, although we might predict that the average size of shallow-water fOlms may Among the coelomates, then, the Mollusca are most similar t o a presumed flatworm ancestor, and the amerous ground plan of the sipunculids is farthest removed (Hadzi, ).

If we base a coelomate phylogeny upon resemblances among the inferred primitive superphyla stocks, then we obtain a pattern resembling Fig. :// Spjeldnaes () described some Silurian bryozoans grown in the shade (beneath coral and stromatoporoid heads), mentioned similar occurrences in the Middle Ordovician, and commented that the relationship persists to the present, with spirorbids, presumably Microconchus, commonly associated with the bryozoans as well as with a few ://.
