Leaf Area (LA)

The surface area of one side of freshly collected intact and mature leaves. Unit of measurement: mm2.

Leaf Dry Matter Content (LDMC)

Leaf dry matter content is a measure of tissue density, given as the ratio of dry leaf weight to fresh weight expressed in mg/g.

Specific Leaf Area (SLA)

Specific leaf area is the ratio of leaf area to leaf dry weight. SLA = leaf area / leaf dry weight expressed in mm2/mg.

Leaf Fresh weight

The fresh weight of freshly collected mature and intact leaves expressed in gramms (g).

Leaf Dry Weight (LDW)

The weight of intact mature leaves dried to weight constancy, expressed in milligrams (mg).

PADAPT only includes leaf trait data from Hungary, based on the data of Lhotsky et al. (2016), E-Vojtkó et al. (2020) and further unpublished primary data.

In case of leafless species or species with reduced leaves, organs functioning as leaves were measured. For more information see the source publications.
