Patterns of growth and allometry were similar between ponds of different hydroperiods, but considerable life history variation was derived from modulating the timing of and size at metamorphosis.
Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium who has studied allometry, or size scaling, since graduate school.
Encephalization data was then used to map changes in relative brain size within specific clades (known as reconstructing a scaling allometry).

Atmospheric oxygen level affects growth trajectory, cardiopulmonary allometry and metabolic rate in the American alligator
Using a combination of recently developed phylogenetic multivariate allometry analyses and comparative methods that can identify distinct rates of evolution, even in highly correlated traits, we studied brain structure evolution in a highly variable clade of ray-finned fishes; the Tanganyikan cichlids.
