Analysis of longitudinal growth increment data using mixed-effects models: Individual and spatial variability in a clam
(Elsevier Science, 2010-07)
Modeling growth is required in many ecological studies and stock assessment applications, but most fish and shellfish growth analyses focus on the estimation of average parameters, which do not provide a complete description ...
Chile's Economic Growth

SOCIAL-CONTROL OF GROWTH IN FISH
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica (ABRADIC), 1994-04-01)
This review concerns the phenomenon of heterogeneous growth (Het-G) in fish. Het-G is characterized by different growth rates between conspecifics. Although genetic determination on Het-G is recognized, grouping increases ...
Climatic cues for secondary growth and cone production are sex-dependent in the long-lived dioecious conifer Araucaria araucana
(Elsevier B.V., 2019)
Trees’ growth responses to climate may depend on tree age and site conditions. In dioecious species, sex adds an extra level of complexity due to differential reproductive effort between the sexes and potentially sex-related ...
Growth Hormone Receptor Exon 3 Isoforms and Their Implication in Growth Disorders and Treatment
Human recombinant growth hormone (hGH) has been used to treat short stature in several different conditions, but considerable inter-individual variation in short- and long-term growth response exists. Pharmacogenomics can ...
Individual growth of Heleobia piscium in natural populations (Gastropoda: Cochliopidae) from the multiple use natural Reserve Isla Martin Garcia, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaCrescimento individual de Heleobia piscium em populações naturais (Gastropoda: Cochliopidae) da Reserva Natural de usos múltiplos Ilha Martín García, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Shell growth of the golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker, 1857) (Mytilidae), in the Río de la Plata, Argentina
(Kluwer Academic/plenum Publ, 2003-12)
The golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, is an invasive freshwater bivalve. Since its introduction to Argentina, it had caused damage to the native fauna as well as economic damage to industries of the region. Here, we ...
Effect of starvation on growth rate, muscle growth and energy density of puyen, Galaxias maculatus
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2013-09)
Seasonal growth of G. maculatus in Tierra del Fuego, at the southern limit of its distribution, would be explained by the variation of extrinsic factors, and experiments of fasting under summer conditions would allow ...
Dependence of survival on growth in larval pollock Pollachius virens and haddock Melanogrammus aeglefinus: a field study based on individual hatchadates
(Marine Ecology Progress Series, 1998)
The hatchdate frequency distributions (HFD) of pollock and haddock larvae sampled at monthly intervals west of Sable Island (Scotian Shelf, northwest Atlantic) in 1992 and 1993 were reconstructed for different age intervals ...
