• Complex constraints on allometry revealed by artificial selection on the wing of Drosophila melanogaster 

      Bolstad, Geir Hysing; Cassara, Jason A.; Marquez, Eladio; Hansen, Thomas F; van der Linde, Kim; Houle, David; Pelabon, Christophe (Journal article, 2015)
      Precise exponential scaling with size is a fundamental aspect of phenotypic variation. These allometric power laws are often invariant across taxa and have long been hypothesized to reflect developmental constraints. Here ...
    • Evolution of morphological allometry 

      Pelabon, Christophe; Firmat, Cyril Joel Patrick; Bolstad, Geir Hysing; Voje, Kjetil L.; Houle, David; Cassara, Jason; Le Rouzic, Arnaud; Hansen, Thomas F (Journal article, 2014)
      Morphological allometry refers to patterns of covariance between body parts resulting from variation in body size. Whether measured during growth (ontogenetic allometry), among individuals at similar developmental stage ...
