dimension analysis

dimension analysis The detailed measurement of plant dimensions in productivity studies. Control studies enable estimation of allometric (see ALLOMETRY) relationships between external dimensions and dry-matter production, so that in future studies destructive sampling (harvesting techniques) is unnecessary. Dimension analysis has particular relevance to forest productivity studies and has been much used.
