Formal name:  stem bark dry mass per stem bark fresh volume
Local identifier:  TOP282
Related Term:  bark specific gravity
Definition:  the ratio of the mass (PATO:mass) of a unit bark (PO:bark) of the stem (PO:stem) assessed after drying to its volume (PATO:volume) being fresh, i.e. sampled without loosing water
Formal Unit:  mass unit / volume unit

Comment:  inverse to bark specific gravity (bark fresh volume / bark dry mass)
