DescriptionWe used oven-dried mass to calculate leaf weight ratio, stem weight ratio and root weight ratio for each sample plant. Our findings indicate that, regardless of stand condition, artificially established Nuttall oak seedlings differed little in biomass accumulation and distribution of accumulated biomass among tissues. While trends in the data indicate that seedlings established under zero percent stocking tended to increase biomass accumulation, high error terms associated with treatment means precluded definitive delineation of differences in seedling biomass accumulation among tissue types under the various stand conditions. However, root weight ratios and stem weight ratios suggest that seedlings established beneath partial canopies may have experienced more moisture stress than seedlings established under zero percent stocking.
