Variation in body size and metamorphic traits of Iberian spadefoot toads over a short geographic distance
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2008-06)
Determinants of geographic variation in body size are often poorly understood, especially in organisms with complex life cycles. We examined patterns of adult body size and metamorphic traits variation in Iberian spadefoot ...
Honey Ants (Genus Myrmecocystus) Macroecology: Effect of Spatial Patterns on the Relationship between Worker Body Size and Geographic Range Size
Macroecology evaluates the partitioning of physical space and resources among organisms through correlation among ecological variables, such as geographical range size and shape, body size, and population density, measured ...

Inequality between Size and Angular Momentum for Bodies
(American Physical Society, 2014-01)
A universal inequality that bounds the angular momentum of a body by the square of its size is presentedand heuristic physical arguments are given to support it. We prove a version of this inequality, asconsequence of the ...

Extreme reduction in body size and reproductive output associated with sandy substrates in two anuran species
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2008-10)
Geographic variation in body size and reproductive traits has been reported in a wide range of organisms, including amphibians. Most studies have focused on latitudinal and/or altitudinal variation where differences in ...
