The aims of this study were to reveal the allometric relationships between population density, plant morphological characteristics, and organ biomass allocation, and to elucidate the adaptive strategy of the plant during the restoration of degraded land. Specifically, we used allometric analysis to evaluate the effect of density on morphological characteristics and the distribution of the biomass of organs in Corispermum macrocarpum. Our results showed that density strongly affects the plant…

TLDR
Interactions among plants and allometry are more important than internal physiological scaling mechanisms in determining the self-thinning trajectory of crowded stands, and interpopulation scaling patterns do not reflect processes within populations, and this conflation lies behind much of the current debate about size–density relationships in plant populations and communities.
