1. Juvenile growth rate is a key life-history trait with a major effect on various fitness components. Duration of the growing season changes with latitude, often resulting in latitudinal variations in growth rate. While many studies have shown a latitudinal cline of growth rate, most have used linear measurements of growth rate without considering the nonlinear nature of growth trajectories. Furthermore, elucidation of the proximate mechanisms causing increased growth rates would provide a fundamental understanding...
