1. It is common practice to express measurements of leaf composition and morphology using dry mass as a basis. Relationships established using those measurements are difficult to interpret because the leaves may have different liquid contents or fractional air space. 2. In a previous theoretical investigation, we showed that the liquid content of leaves was important and the following hypotheses were proposed: (1) the mass of nitrogen per unit mass of liquid is relatively constant within leaves...[Show more]
