These galls may be slight modifications of host tissues, as the eriophyid galls on Cirsium arvense (Rancic et al., 2006), or may also be formed by hyperplasia, cell hypertrophy and/or parenchyma homogenization, as demonstrated for thrips-induced galls on several host plants (Raman & Ananthakrishnan, 1983; Gopinathan & Ananthakrishnan, 1985; Jorge et al., 2016), aphid galls induced by Eriosoma ulmi on Ulmus minor (Sano & Akimoto, 2011; Alvarez et al., 2013; Ferreira et al., 2017a), psyllid galls on Baccharis reticularia
(Formiga et al., 2015), cecidomyiid galls induced by Dasinenra affinis on Viola odorata (Meyer, 1987), and sawfly (hymenopteran) galls on Salix spp.

Examples include Kinosternon subrubrum, Trachemys scripta scripta, and Deirochelys reticularia
(Gibbons, 1987; Frazer et al., 1990, 1991a); Chelydra serpentina (Galbraith and Brooks, 1987; Congdon et al., 1994); Chrysemys picta (Frazer et al., 1991b); Kinosternon flavescens (Iverson, 1991); and Emydoidea blandingii (Congdon et al., 1993; Herman et al., 1994).
Chicken turtles (Deirochelys reticularia
) and southern spotted turtles (Clemmys guttata) increase egg size but not clutch size with an increase in maternal body size (Congdon et al., 1983; Litzgus and Mousseau, 2006).
Gopherus polyphemus is a terrestrial species, whereas the other species (including Apalone ferox, Deirochelys reticularia
and Trachemys scripta) are inhabitants of lakes and ponds.
