|Description||The body length measurements and its weight are the organism genotype expression phenotypic traits and they represent its classification in a biological species, breed, line or a hybrid combination. Body size growth curve and body weight growth curve show the individual genotype expression in the internal and external environment conditions during the evaluated growth period. Body lenght growth curve from birth to maturity is according to Karlberg divided into three components: the first is called the (I) component - Infancy, the second (C) - Childhood and the third (P) - Puberty. In this paper it is shown that not only the body length growth (body length size parameters, D) but also the weight growth (G) of individual boys corresponds to a growth curve composed of the three connecting components I, C, P.|
