Abstract : The areas of intact mango leaves of all ages were measured by the curvilinear regression equation log Y = a log X + b, where X is leaf length from base to tip and a and b are coefficients. The equation for juvenile and mature cv. Haden and healthy cv. Turpentine leaves was log Y = 2.2398log X - 1.1282 (r = 0.973), and for Turpentine leaves malformed with mango scab and anthracnose, log Y = 1.5509 log X - 0.1727 (r = 0.941).
