Prior explicit allometric models are extended to predict the scaling relationship between the ability of plants with leafless stems to harvest sunlight H and total standing plant biomass M(T) (which equals the sum of standing stem and root biomass, M(S) and M(R)). Provided that H scales in a directly proportional manner (isometrically) with respect to either stem surface area (i.e.H proportional, variant SA(S) ) or total stem biomass (i.e. H proportional, variant M(S)), the allometric model… CONTINUE READING
