mer-, mero-, meri-, -mer, -merous, -mere, -meric, -meristic +

(Greek: part, partial, referring to parts; segment; incomplete)

Substances with a different chemical composition but the same crystalline form.
A reference to organisms which differ in the number of the parts of any organ from that which is customary in the group to which they belong.
allometric growth
1. Differing in growth rate.
2. The growth of different parts of the body of an organism at different rates or at different times.

In humans, for example, brain growth stops at about the age of five years, while other parts of the body continue to develop.

1. The study of relative growth.
2. A change of proportions with an increase of size.
3. Growth rate of a part differing from a standard growth rate or from the growth rate of the whole.
4. Variations in the relative size of a part, either in the course of an organism's growth or within a series of related organisms, or the measurement and study of such variations.
andromerogone, andromerogon
An embryo that develops from the portion of an egg containing the male pronucleus.

The embryo therefore only contains paternally derived chromosomes.

The development of an andromerogone (portion of an egg containing only the male pronucleus).
Of unequal measurement, consisting of unequal or nonsymmetrical parts.
Having two divisions or parts.
diploid merogony
Development of a portion of an egg containing the combined products of the male and female pronuclei.
gynomerogon, gynomerogone
An organism derived from an ovum possessing solely a female pronucleus (nucleus of the ovum after fertilization) and thus with maternal chromosomes only.
Development of the part of a fertilized ovum having only the female pronucleus with its maternal chromosomes.
1. Indicating, having, or exhibiting equality of dimensions or measurements.
2. In physiology, denoting the condition when the ends of a contracting muscle are held fixed so that contraction produces increased tension at a constant overall length.
3. In chemistry, compounded of the same elements in the same proportion by weight, but differing in one or more properties.
4. Having similar parts in similar numbers.
Having the same number of parts.
A condition of lacking some parts.
A disorder that results in a partial inability to work or to function; which may occur in neuroses.
