Abstract

This project aims to develop and apply computational methods in order to identify, characterize and analyze plants using images of leaves. The main motivation of this study is to contribute to the morphology techniques already developed, facilitating and streamlining the task of identifying plant species. For morphology and texture of the leaves are considered macroscopic and microscopic image analysis, thereby promoting a better identification of the species. The nature of plant biology and its characteristics of large intra-species and small differences between species, make the problem of the characterization and identification leaves a great scientific challenge. Motivated by this problem the proponent group studies and develops methods for its solution for almost a decade, featuring a symbiotic approach, which are benefiting the biological sciences, computer science and applied mathematics. In plant biology, the use of sophisticated mathematics and computing, favor the emergence of tools to enhance the study of plants. Already in computing and mathematics, the problem in question motivates the development and improvement methodology. (AU)
