Scaling the leaf length-times-width equation to predict total leaf area of shoots

Kohei Koyama & Duncan D Smith
Background and Aims: An individual plant consists of different-sized shoots, each of which consists of different-sized leaves. To predict plant-level physiological responses from the responses of individual leaves, modelling this within-shoot leaf size variation is necessary. Within-plant leaf trait variation has been well investigated in canopy photosynthesis models but less so in plant allometry. Therefore, integration of these two different approaches is needed. Methods: We focused on an established leaf-level relationship that the area of...
