Formal name:  whole plant leaf dry mass per whole plant dry mass trait
Abbreviation:  LMR

Definition:  the ratio of the whole plant leaf dry mass trait (TOP:plant leaf dry mass trait) to the whole plant dry mass (TOP:plant dry mass)

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