Question

1. Examine the scaling factors for the relationships for each plant. Remember, we are looking at linear trendlines, not power trendlines! Determine whether the relationships are isometric or allometric.
2. Reflect on what the growth pattern is if the scaling factor does not reflect isometry. For example, does respiration rate increase faster or slower than your size or mass measure? How does growth over time explain this? Explain a rationale for each of the plant species measured
3. Are the scaling factors for the two plants similar or different? Reflect on how this might explain similarities or differences in the metabolic physiology of the two plant species? Explain.
4. What environmental and/or ecological factors might explain the scaling factors you calculated between respiration and growth measures for each species?
5. Can you think of any factors that might influence the scaling factors calculated, which might introduce error or inconsistency?
