Plant allometry The scaling of form and process


, : Plant allometry The scaling of form and process. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 91(15): 6772-6779

Allometry, or scaling analysis, usually means the growth of a part of an organism in relation to the growth of the whole organism or some part of it and the study of the consequences of size on organic form and process. This work describes the use of allometric techniques in studies on the evolution, morphology, physiology, and reproduction of plants. The text covers both aquatic and terrestrial plants, algae, trees, and fossil as well as living forms. Graphs, mathematical formulae, and diagrams supplement the text. An appendix covering methods used to determine and interpret scaling relations is included along with references, an author index, and a subject index.
