Stem coarse woody debris silicon content per stem coarse woody debris dry mass

Formal name:  stem coarse woody debris silicon content per stem coarse woody debris dry mass
Local identifier:  TOP656
Synonym Term:  stem CWD Si content per dry mass
Synonym Term:  stem coarse woody debris Si content per dry mass
Related Term:  stem coarse woody debris Si content
Related Term:  stem coarse woody debris Si concentration
Definition:  The ratio of the quantity (SEP:quantity) of silicon (CHEBI:silicon atom) in the stem (PO:stem) coarse woody debris (Def:coarse woody debris) to the corresponding stem (PO:stem) coarse woody debris mass (PATO:mass) assessed after drying
Formal Unit:  mass unit / mass unit or amount unit / mass unit

Comment:  The quantity of silicon 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.
