Nitrogen intake and faecal nitrogen excretion increased (p<0.001) linearly, while apparent nitrogen retention increased (p<0.001) curvilinearly
as the amount of cassava powder fed increased (Table 2).
A linearly tapered die is considered to relax the restrictions on residence time distribution required of the curvilinearly
tapered coat-hanger die.
(9) strength may be curvilinearly
associated with functional status so that the most evident association would be found among the very frail elderly.
Neither assumption is correct: net costs of transport increase curvilinearly
at maximal speeds within any particular gait (e.g., human net cost of transport [= metabolic rate [kg.sup.-1] [km.sup.-1]] increases by more than 450% at top running speed; Cavagna and Kaneko 1977; see also Heglund and Taylor 1988) and muscular efficiency increases with increasing running speed (e.g., Cavagna and Kaneko 1977; Heglund et al.
"  These two dimensions are hypothesized to be related curvilinearly
to family health.
Eggum (1973) demonstrated in rats that the apparent fecal CP digestibility in soybean meal (SBM) increased curvilinearly
with increasing dietary CP content.
Potential fecundity increased curvilinearly
However, the plant plasticity did not fully compensate for reduced plant populations as seed yields reduced curvilinearly
as plant populations decreased.
Similarly, BW[I.sub.+ColP], [Ps.sub.+ColP]), and PR[I+.sub.ColP] at P additions of 1000 mg P/kg, were curvilinearly
related to [PBC.sub.O&S] (Fig.
Finally, Champoux (1992) tested the hypothesis that job complexity and affective outcomes are curvilinearly
related, and that both GNS and context satisfactions interact with this curvilinear effect.
The lower panel illustrates functions for four subjects whose performances are curvilinearly
related to treatments.
For all berry sizes and presentations, intake rate during an entire foraging bout increased curvilinearly
with increasing initial berry density [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
