A theory of multivariate allometry is developed. Bivariate and multivariate allometry are then shown to be compatible, the defining differential equations being analogs of each other and invariant under analogous allometric transforms. The relevance of allometric equations to growth modeling is examined. Commonly used growth models that are invariant under allometric transforms are capable of being formulated in terms of allometric (growth) differential equations. Methods for formulating and solving multivariate growth models are demonstrated. For. Sci. 44(3):458-464.
