Abstract

A shape factor was introduced in the growth equation for S. phasa (Ham.) based on Von Bertalanffy's growth model and allometric growth. The estimates thus obtained fit the observed values better than those obtained with the assumption that growth is isometric. A new method of evaluating shape factor is described.
