We propose in this paper a fully automatic approach for image-based plant stornata phenotyping. Given a microscopic image of a plant leaf surface, our goal is to automatically detect stornata cells and measure their morphological and structural features, such as stornata opening length and width, and size of the guard cells. The main challenge in developing such tool is the lack of contrast between the stornata cell region and its surrounding background. Our approach uses template matching to… CONTINUE READING
