Figure 6.

Growth of a fifth-instar larva with a critical weight of 5.2 g. The vertical dotted line is drawn through the time point at which the critical weight is passed. The growth trajectory before this time is concave upward and the trajectory after this time is concave downward, and the best-fitting equations for each of these segments of the growth trajectory are indicated.
