Model predictions of the effect of growth rate on body size. (a) Predicted effect of variation in growth rate on peak size; (b) predicted effect of variation in growth rate on peak size in the presence of a small amount of random variation in all other parameter values. Variation in the generating parameters masks the sawtooth character of the 'ideal' relationship. The line is a linear regression.
