Description

Data were collated from Froese, R. and Pauly, D. Editors. 2015. FishBase. World Wide Web electronic publication. www.fishbase.org, version (10/2015). Data were used in Sibly, R.M., Baker, J., Grady, J.M., Luna, S.M., Kodric-Brown, A., Venditti, C., Brown, J.H. 2015. Fundamental insights into ontogenetic growth from theory and fish. PNAS, 112, 13934-13939. The data used give species/population values of the following parameters:- K: Bertalanffy growth coefficient; m inf: Maximum body mass; water temperatures: T_Kelvin is the temperature we used. Some other descriptors from FishBase are also included. See FishBase for definitions of parameters and the units in which they are measured.
