With this scenario, M is assumed to be constant throughout the life of a fish; however, M has been shown to vary ontogenetically in pelagic tunas and may be an order of magnitude higher for small fishes (Hampton, 2000).
On the basis of a detailed study of Yucca whipplei, covering the histology (Diggle & DeMason, 1983a, b) and audiography (DeMason & Diggle, 1984) observations, it was concluded that the PTM and the monocot cambium (referred to by them as STM) are ontogenetically related to each other and "function as a single entity during the growth and development of the vegetative stem".
In contrast to developmental-process and most expanded multidimensional theories, which are dependent upon impetus from environmental ecosystems wherein correct orientation has already been debased, formational theories proceed assuming (1) that correct orientation is the natural disposition of the African personality for attainment ontogenetically and (2) that it would teleologically drive behavior but for the aforementioned psychological misorientation that has been imposed.
Optimal temperature and food-ration requirements may be controlled ontogenetically (Kinne 1970, Helm et al.
An ontogenetically focused chaetotaxical scheme in Symphypleona (Collembola): the 6th abdominal segment.
Especially in the three middle sections of the continuum it is difficult to make sharp distinctions between the levels or to say which comes first (both ontogenetically and phylogenetically): for instance, many cognitive processes involve the linguistic competencies that fall under my "embodiment in language.
In addition, sex ratios might vary ontogenetically in a population (Swannack and Rose, 2003).
Ontogenetically, pliance likely precedes tracking (Torncke et al.
Among the topics are from Tyrannosaurus rex to asteroid impact: early studies (1901-80) of the Hell Creek Formation in its type area, carbon isotope stratigraphy and correlation of plant megafossil localities, a preliminary test of the press-pulse extinction hypothesis: palynological indicators of vegetation change preceding the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary in McCone County, the diversity and paleoecology of actinopterygian fish from vertebrate microfossil localities of the Maastrichtian Hell Creek Formation, and the cranial morphology of a juvenile Triceratops skull and comments on the fossil record of ontogenetically younger skulls.
Other morphological features, such as mouth position, may also be expected to change ontogenetically in order to more effectively match the characteristics of a changing prey base.
Metzinger's claim that the subject is born into a virtual reality from the beginning and only gradually develops both phylogenetically and ontogenetically into a more complex system that is capable of self-reflection resonates with Herder's idea that life evolves from simple organic plant life to more complex processes in animals to the human organism as the highest form of existence.
I]t stands nearer to unconscious processes than does thinking in words, and it is unquestionably older than the latter both ontogenetically and phylogenetically.
