In the clam Meretrix casta collected from Munampam, Cochin, the allometric relationships between height (H)/depth (D)/dry flesh weight (W)/shell weight (S), and length (L) and W/S and H are different for the smaller ( 20.4 mm) and larger ( 20.4 mm) size groups. But the H/D relationship remained the same for both size groups. The relativistic principles involved are discussed
