Leaf dry mass trait

Formal name:  leaf dry mass trait
Local identifier:  TOP39
Related Term:  leaf dry weight
Definition:  the mass (PATO:mass) of a leaf (PO:leaf) or component thereof, i.e. leaf lamina or leaflet (PO:leaf lamina, PO:leaflet) assessed after drying
Formal Unit:  mass unit

Comment:  "when known, the component of the leaf on which the measurements have been taken should be specified: leaf, leaf lamina, leaflet. The term ""leaf dry weight"" should not be used, since the mass of an object is constant, while its weight varies with the effect of gravity."
