Abstract

The different vegetation formations are marked by different environmental factors. Plant leaves are the organs that have more structural variations that are interpreted as adaptations to specific environments. In this context, the project aims to study the anatomical variations and specific leaf area of woody species, representative of different vegetation formations, identifying structural and functional variations of their leaves, related to the characteristics found in the different environments analyzed. The project also aims to develop and apply computational methods for analysis of plants by images of their leaves. The motivation of this approach is to contribute to the morphological techniques already developed, making easier the task of identifying the plant species. (AU)
