the opposite of paedomorphosis?



So, if paedomorphosis is the reduction in overall size, rostrum length
and such due to sexual maturity while in the juvenile stage, what is the
term and process for rostrum lengthening, neck elongation and overall
size increase?

No jokes about the 'awkward age' in teenagers, unless pertinent.

I've read it about this. I just need a reminder and perhaps a ref.
