These regression equations suggested that the shell morphology of Solen gordonis changed ontogenetically from blade like to cylindroid in form (Fig.
Logically, however, cultural time is primary: Once humans have entered the symbolic order of culture (phylogenetically in the history of humankind or ontogenetically in each individual life), including third time, then the first and second orders of time can be only approximated as liminal or hypothetical constructions, interpretable only through the third, which problematizes any "rigid dogmatic distinction between the subjective and the objective" (Cassirer, 1923/1955, p.

There are three whitefish that ontogenetically shift from zooplanktivores to predatory species: longjaw silverside (Chirostoma lucius); bigmouth silverside (Chirostoma sphyraena); and blacknose silverside (Chirostoma promelas).
Diets and feeding behavior of other scieanids are known to vary ontogenetically and seasonally (Martin 1979; Scharf & Schlicht 2000) which could result in a natural impact on condition.
In this sense his movement through the city streets does not seek its ontological cause in the actual representation of the space that he walks, but rather movement ontogenetically enfolds the emergence of an actual trajectory from the potential virtuality of its dynamism.
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).
