Coarse woody debris carbon content per coarse woody debris dry mass trait

Formal name:  coarse woody debris carbon content per coarse woody debris dry mass
Local identifier:  TOP751
Synonym Term:  coarse woody debris C content per dry mass
Synonym Term:  CWD C content per dry mass
Related Term:  coarse woody debris C content
Related Term:  coarse woody debris C concentration
Definition:  The ratio of the quantity (SEP:quantity) of carbon (CHEBI:carbon atom) in the coarse woody debris (Def:coarse woody debris) to the corresponding coarse woody debris mass (PATO:mass) assessed after drying
Formal Unit:  mass unit / mass unit or amount unit / mass unit

Comment:  The quantity of carbon can be expressed either as a mass (with mass unit, e.g. gram) or as an amount (with amount unit, e.g. mol). The term concentration is polysemic and we suggest to not use it in this context. If possible the organ should be specified, i.e. stem CWD or branch CWD.
