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