1. Knowledge of biomass partitioning is essential for estimating spatial patterns and temporal dynamics of root biomass in terrestrial ecosystems. The isometric hypothesis predicts that aboveground biomass scales isometrically with belowground biomass across both individual plants and community types (i.e. the slope of the log–log relationship between aboveand belowground biomass is not significantly different from 1.0), and that the isometric pattern is independent of variation in… CONTINUE READING
