    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85719, USA
    Nature 449:218-22. 2007
    ..Our model provides a framework for predicting not only how traits covary within an integrated allometric phenotype but also how trait variation mechanistically influences plant growth and carbon flux within and across diverse ecosystems...

    Am J Bot 95:516-9. 2008
    ..These results indicate that various methodologies for measuring wood specific gravity are comparable, and thus less destructive methods than are currently used are available to determine values for this important trait...
