Dynamics of shape changes. (A) Neurocranium, (B) «suspensorium and opercle» unit, (C) mandible and (D) premaxilla. Rates of divergence (Mean ± Standard error) away from the larval shape, estimated by the regression of the Procrustes distance between each specimen and the average larval form of its species on log-transformed centroid size. The rates are expressed as the amount of shape changes per unit of size. The diet of each species is illustrated by patterned bars. See Table 1 for abbreviations of the species.
