Review Glossary Allometry: study of how one part of an organism grows either in relation to the whole organism or to some other part. Many allometric relationships are well described by the equation Y = bX a , where a is the allometry exponent. When a = 1, the relationship is linear. When a > 1, increases in Y outpace increases in X and the relationship is positively allometric. When a < 1, increases in Y do not keep pace with increases in X and the relationship is negatively allometric.doi:10.1016/j.tics.2013.09.013 pmid:24501779 fatcat:gpgvmnrnnfbxpjfqey7jtgwmba
