    Abstract : Organizational size is a common way to describe and understand organizations invarious settings: in every-day situations as well as in organizational research. Withinorganization theory, organizational size has been seen variously as a basic feature ofthe organization (an independent variable); as a result of a reaction to the environmentof the organization (a dependent variable); or as a basic criterion for the selectionand categorizing of empirical cases (a selective variable).

  2. 2. Size matters

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anna Åsman; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]

    Abstract : Non-coding RNAs do not encode proteins but instead function through their own RNA sequence. These molecules range from several thousands of nucleotides (nt) in length down to around 20 nt. Specifically, small RNAs (sRNAs) have critical functions in eukaryotic cells, despite being only 20-30 nt long. READ MORE

    Abstract : The evolution of the vertebrate brain has remained a topic of intense interest from biologists over many decades. Evolutionary biologists have seen it as an intriguing example of how the size and structure of a trait evolves across large phylogenies and under body size constraints, with both large shifts in deep evolutionary time and continuous smaller scale adaptation.

    Abstract : Life history research deals with the scheme of resource partitioning to a wide spectra of processes and the trade-offs shaping these events. One of the most fundamental life history trade-offs is the one of at which age- and size an organism should start to reproduce; reaching a large size at maturity is often advantageous in terms of high adult survival and reproductive potential, while to attain a larger size the organisms must prolong juvenile development which is assumed costly in terms of mortality.
