Root hemicellulose content per root dry mass trait

Formal name:  root hemicellulose content per root dry mass
Local identifier:  TOP896
Synonym Term:  root hemicellulose content per dry mass
Related Term:  root hemicellulose concentration
Definition:  The ratio of the mass (PATO:mass) of hemicellulose (CHEBI:hemicellulose) in the root (PO:root) to the corresponding root mass (PATO:mass) assessed after drying

Comment:  The term concentration is polysemic and we suggest to not use it in this context. When known, the component of the root on which the measurements have been taken should be specified: coarse root, fine root.
