The allometric relationships between mean weights of components, such as stems, branches and leaves and tree weight as well as their time-trajectories, were studied with data of self-thinning Pinus densiflora stands with different densities. The allometric relationships existed between the weights of stems, branches and leaves and the tree weight during the course of self-thinning. The stem weight ratio increased with increasing tree weight because the allometric coefficient in stem was higher… CONTINUE READING
