Abstract
    A model describing the positive correlation between variation in zooid size within bryozoan colonies and the amount of seasonal variation in temperature is tested in Panamanian encrusting bryozoans from contrasting seasonal regimes. Results reveal that in a natural setting the model provides accurate estimates of the level of seasonality experienced by the colonies.
