Synonym Term:  first oder fine root hemicellulose content per dry mass
Synonym Term:  fine root hemicellulose content per dry mass
Related Term:  fine root hemicellulose concentration

Definition:  The ratio of the mass (PATO:mass) of hemicellulose (CHEBI:hemicellulose) in the fine root (McCormack:fine root) to the corresponding fine root mass (PATO:mass) assessed after drying
Formal Unit:  mass unit / mass unit

Comment:  The term concentration is polysemic and we suggest to not use it in this context.
Comment:  The term concentration is polysemic and we suggest to not use it in this context. We suggest to specify fine roots by function (absorption versus transport) and branching order in addition to diameter (<= 2 mm).
