Allometry Correction in Taximetrics

Abstract

The process of allometry often distorts numerical results, causing size-related effects in shape coefficients. The study of allometry has traditionally emphasized only aspects of detection and description, rather than correction, of allometric trends. A method of allometry correction is offered for the specific purpose of adjusting metrical data prior to quantitative taxonomic analysis.
