Growth

Growth involves changes in proportion as well as size. Explain this statment.
Question asked by: nackieb

Asked on: 10 Mar 2009

Growth does not necessarily mean changes in proportion - for instance if the size of a leg doubles and the size of a body doubles too then this still counts as growth, even though the proportion does not change.

In most creatures though growth does include change in proportion, for instance the size of a babies head is larger than the body proportionate to the same relationship in adults.
