Plant leaf dry mass trait

Formal name:  whole plant leaf dry mass trait
Local identifier:  TOP75
Related Term:  leaf dry weight
Definition:  the sum of the dry mass of the leaf (TOP:leaf dry mass) or component thereof (TOP:leaf dry mass trait) of all leaves (PO:leaf) on a shoot (PO:shoot system)
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 (PO:leaf lamina). 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."
