Parameter a iso a obs p-value Scaling
BV/TV 0 0.166 0.004 +allo
ConnD −3 −2.138 1.2×10−5 +allo
BS/BV −1 −0.829 0.013 +allo

  1. a iso - expected scaling exponent under isometry
  2. a obs - observed scaling exponent
  3. p-value - tests null hypothesis a obs =a iso
  4. +/ −allo - positive or negative allometry
