Litter magnesium content per litter dry mass

Formal name:  litter magnesium content per litter dry mass
Local identifier:  TOP591
Synonym Term:  litter Mg content per dry mass
Related Term:  litter Mg content
Related Term:  litter Mg concentration
Definition:  The ratio of the quantity (SEP:quantity) of magnesium (CHEBI:magnesium atom) in the litter (Berg:litter) to the corresponding litter mass (PATO:mass) assessed after drying
Formal Unit:  mass unit / mass unit or amount unit / mass unit

Comment:  The quantity of magnesium 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.
