Parameter landscapes unveil the bias in allometric prediction
1. The criteria for choosing the appropriate line-fitting method (LFM) and correction estimator for determining the functional allometric relationship, and for predicting the Y-variable accurately are controversial. A ...
Why does not the leaf weight-area allometry of bamboos follos the 3/2-power law?
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2018)
The principle of similarity (Thompson, 1917) states that the weight of an organism follows the 3/2-power law of its surface area and is proportional to its volume on the condition that the density is constant. However, ...
Leaf fresh weight versus dry weight: which is better for describing the scaling relationship between leaf biomass and leaf area for broad-leaved plants
Leaf dry mass per unit area (LMA) is considered to represent the photosynthetic capacity, which actually implies a hypothesis that foliar water mass (leaf fresh weight minus leaf dry weight) is proportional to leaf dry ...
