1.2 Scaling and Sizes
- There is great diversity in the shapes and sizes of brains of different species.
- Order and patterns can be found within the huge array of biological diversity. Scientists rely on repeating patterns amongst brains to draw comparisons. This is known as scaling: the regularities that happen as size varies.
- Proportions change with size and is the key to studying scaling.
- Patterns can also be used to make predictions.
