Divide and conquer? Size adjustment with allometry and intermediate outcomes

Abstract

Many trait measurements are size-dependent, and while we often divide these traits by size before fitting statistical models to control for the effect of size, this approach does not account for allometry and the intermediate outcome problem. We describe these problems and outline potential solutions.
