Notes: Fluidized Bed Coating of Conifer Needles With Glass Beads for Determination of Leaf Surface Area
Abstract:Details are presented of a fluidized bed for use in the glass bead technique of determining surface area of pine needles and other small leaves. The bed simplified coating procedure and gave improved uniformity of bead coverage leading to decreased sample variability. Calibration aspects of the glass bead technique are discussed. Forest Sci. 26:29-32.
