measuring the leaf area of plants spans many scientific disciplines. monitoring the distribution and changes of leaf area is important for assessing growth and vigour of vegetation on the planet. it is fundamentally important as a parameter in land-surface processes and climate models. this variable represents the amount of leaf material in ecosystems and controls the links between biosphere and atmosphere through various processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration and rain interception. a measurement that is seemingly so simple and fundamental is really the backbone that provides the framework for further research in areas like ecology, agronomy, entomology, carbon cycle research and plant pathology. these and many other disciplines rely on the measurement of leaf area in much of their work.
for example, an ecologist may want to quantify total biomass in the environment he is working in and break that biomass to specific leaf area of all the species he/she is studying. over time they would be interested in knowing how that total biomass changes from species to species.
