Table 1 Allometric slope of fins

From: Male mate choice scales female ornament allometry in a cichlid fish

Trait slope S.E. t p
pelvic fin 0.9297 0.1022 -0.69 0.49
caudal fin 0.829 0.1123 -1.52 0.13
anal fin 0.736 0.07816 -3.38 0.001**
pectoral fin 0.7361 0.0764 -4.62 < 0.001***
dorsal fin 0.5012 0.108 -3.45 < 0.001***
  1. Allometric slope with standard error (S.E.) of 79 female fish and statistical test (test statistic t and probability p) whether the allometric relationship between fin size and standard length deviated from 1. *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01.
