This approach uses allometry as a criterion of subtraction (Gould, 1975), as it has been done traditionally in bivariate studies. The central assumption of all methods for "size correction,'' is that the groups share the same allometric vector. If the groups have different allometric patterns, size correction is not possible because all corrections that are suitable for one group will not work in other groups. , 1985; Rohlf and Bookstein, 1987). , undetected sex dimorphism or cryptic species, may invalidate the entire analysis.

Thompson was a Scot, born in Edinburgh in 1860, the grandson of a sea captain and the son of an able classical scholar who was born at sea off the coast of Tasmania, a dramatic event marred by the death of his mother.
