    The study of the relationship between size and shape is Allometry. It was first outlined by Otto Snell in 1892 and in 1932 by Julian Huxley. It is often applied to biology and growth and statistical shape analysis for its theoretical developments and is a well known study. One example is where a minuscule change in overall body size can lead to a gigantic disproportionate increase in the appendages’ dimensions.
