- ... Patterns of plant biomass partitioning are fundamental to estimates of primary productivity and ecosystem process rates. Allometric relationships between above‐ground plant biomass and non‐destructive measures of plant size, such as cover, volume or stem density are widely used in plant ecology. Such size‐biomass allometry is often assumed to be invariant for a given plant species, plant functiona ...
