Projects

Links between leaf architecture, function and environment: New approaches (2018)$35,137
Description
This project aims to develop new analytical approaches to study the links between leaf anatomical traits and plant ecophysiology. To do this, a machine learning algorithm will be developed that can recognise cellular traits from microscope images of leaves. This will be achieved using a deep convolutional neural network. The algorithms can be applied to fossilised cuticle remains to estimate certain characteristics of past environments. This aspect of the project will refine palaeoecological estimates, as well as those of past biomass and climates.
