Plant Image Analysis : Fundamentals and Applications
This book covers recent developments in image analysis of higher plants at leaf, plant, and small canopy level. It introduces the basic concepts of image analysis and discusses various techniques in plant imaging, applications and future potentials. It covers imaging techniques that include RGB imaging, hyperspectral imaging, thermal imaging, multi-spectral fluorescence imaging, chlorophyll fluorescence imaging and ROS imaging. It then details their use in the assessment of plant growth and photosynthetic status, early detection of diseases and stress, cellular detection of reactive oxygen species, and plant phenotyping.
