Pronunciation /ˌɒntə(ʊ)ˈdʒɛnɪk/


See ontogeny

‘Although these issues have been addressed in several plant species, very few studies exist for tree species, especially those addressing the genetic basis of phenotypic plasticity and ontogenic allometry.’
  • ‘The second approach consists of measuring biomechanical parameters in different samples to demonstrate the effect of ontogenic, genetic or environmental conditions.’
  • ‘Alternatively, therefore, the expression of hormone receptors in the ovarian-like stroma of cystic nephroma may be related to female gender and smooth muscle differentiation rather than ontogenic similarity to ovarian stroma.’
  • ‘However, alternative ways of integrating more global and long-term regulation (from nycthemeral to ontogenic changes) into mechanistic modelling have been tested.’
  • ‘Thus measurements on plants with different canopy heights and at different ontogenic stages were made, to investigate whether the relationship could be used in all cases.’
