Dwarfism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Any plant or animal sufficiently less than minimal size standards for any given species is considered a dwarf. Dwarfism, the affecting condition, can result from both genetic and environmental factors. Genetic mutations affecting growth hormones typically result in proportionate dwarfism, while disproportionate dwarfism can be caused by mutations in other growth-related genes.
