The highest daily hours of sunshine are related to longitude across the distribution of pill millipedes Sphaerotherıum Brandt, 1833

Abstract :

The objectives of this study were to determine what happened when Sexual Size Dimorphism (SSD) and body size changed with an eco-geographical factor. The highest daily hours of sunshine were correlated with latitude and longitude in the forest millipede genus Sphaerotherium. There was a correlation between the highest daily hours of sunshine and longitude (r=-0.88574162, Z score=-2.80361409, n=7, p=0.00252673). Eco-geographical variance in the polygynandrous reproductive systems occurs with larger females and higher SSD occurring in darker conditions.
