    • An analysis of sexual size dimorphism in goose 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (Taylor & Francis, 2014)
      1. Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is a common phenomenon in animals. Rensch"s rule states that larger species generally exhibit a higher male to female body size ratio than smaller ones. 2. Domesticated animals offer excellent ...
