Body size is an important species trait, correlating with lifespan, fecundity, and other ecological factors. Over Earth’s geological history, climate shifts have occurred, potentially shaping body size evolution in many clades. General rules attempting to summarize body size evolution include Bergmann’s rule, which states that species grow to larger sizes in cooler environments and smaller sizes in warmer environments; and Cope’s rule, which poses that lineages tend to increase in size over evolutionary time. Tetraodontiform...
