Evolution of life history parameters in animals with indeterminate growth, particularly fish.
Because anurans show indeterminate growth is expected that body size and age are positively correlated (Halliday &Verrell, 1988; Duellman & Trueb, 1994).
The soybean cultivars used for this experiment were: TEC 5718 IPRO (short plant heigth, determinate growth, short cycle/5.9), CD 2694 IPRO (medium/high plant heigth, determinate growth, medium/long cycle /6.9), TEC 6029 IPRO (medium/high plant heigth, indeterminate growth, short cycle/5.7), and BMX 7166 RSF IPRO (high plant heigth, indeterminate growth, medium cycle/6.6).
Unlike nearly all other arthropods, amblypygids have indeterminate growth and continue to molt after sexual maturity (Weygoldt 2000; Chapin & Hebets 2016).
Plots were constituted of four 5-m rows spaced 50cm apart, using only the two central rows as useful area (4[m.sup.2]).The evaluated soybean cultivars have indeterminate growth habit, belonging to the relative maturity groups 6.0, 6.1 and 6.1, respectively.
The highest mean values of plant height observed in the common bean cultivars Esteio and Pitanga are due to their indeterminate growth habit.
The correlation between the inflorescence and growth type was 0.54 (P < 0.001) which indicates that semi-determinate and indeterminate growth types are likely to have branched inflorescence in comparison to that of determinate types.
Varieties for fresh consumption often have long harvesting period (indeterminate growth type), with fruit size ranging from very small (cherry type, up to 30 g) to extra-large (250 g and more), depending on the preferences of the specific consumers (Solanke and Kumar, 2013).
The herbaceous plant has an indeterminate growth habit with trifoliate leaves and legume pods containing 10-20 golden brownish seeds.
These three species have a terminal molt, as opposed to indeterminate growth, which allows mature females to be classified as primiparous or multiparous based upon shell condition, with primiparous crab having a newer shell with little wear and no epifauna (Somerton & Meyers 1983, Sainte-Marie 1993).
Clover is indeterminate growth, therefore siding branches will be grow and produce much number of pods.
