Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A juvenile is an individual organism that has not yet reached its adult form, sexual maturity or size. Juveniles sometimes look very different from the adult form, particularly in terms of their colour. In many organisms the juvenile has a different name from the adult (see also List of animal names). Some organisms reach maturity in a short metamorphosis, such as eclosion in many insects. For others, the transition from juvenile to fully mature is a more prolonged process - puberty for example. In such cases, juveniles during this transformation are sometimes called subadults.show more
