Table 1.

Allometric equation values for Y=aMbbdetermined by reduced major axis regression where Y is parameter length (m) and Mb is body mass (kg)(N=9)

The 95% confidence intervals are given in parentheses. Coefficient values(a) have been corrected for statistical bias due to log-transformation (Sprugal,1983).
