PlantScan™: a three-dimensional phenotyping platform for capturing the structural dynamic of plant development and growth
Keywords: Plant architecture, transformational technology, automated feature extraction, quantification
AbstractPlantScan is an integrated analysis pipeline, seamlessly integrating hardware and software tools to provide automated, non-invasive analyses of plant structure (topology, surface orientation, number of leaves...), morphology (leaf size, shape, colour, area, volume...) and function. By utilising cutting edge information technology to automatically digitise plants in three dimensions, it enables plant scientists to better understand the complex interactions involved in plant growth, i.e., the plant's genetic make-up, its physical characteristics and the environment in which it grows, thus, providing essential information to populate functional structural plant models.
