BACKGROUND AND AIMS The leaf size-twig size spectrum is one of the leading dimensions of plant ecological variation, and now it is under development. The purpose of this study was to test whether the relationship between leaf size and twig size is isometric or allometric, and to examine the relationship between plant allometric growth and life history strategies in the spectrum. METHODS Leaf and stem characters-including leaf and stem mass, total leaf area, individual leaf area, stem cross… CONTINUE READING
