Simulation of population variation in body size and development time. One thousand individuals were generated with small amounts of random variation in all parameter values of the model. (a) Frequency distribution of peak sizes; (b) frequency distribution of times at which peak size was reached and wandering stage began. Hatched areas are photoperiodic gates.
