A General Allometric Model for Blade Production in Zostera marina L.
We introduce a generalized allometric model to express leaf dry weight in terms of leaf width and size in Zostera marina L. A formal justification of the derived model is presented. For the statistical validation we used data collected on two well defined strata over a period of one year. A comparison of the results using an independent data set was also performed. Applications of the model to estimate average leaf production are illustrated as well.
