Two-dimensional multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis for plant identification.

Wang F, Liao DW, Li JW, Liao GP - Plant Methods (2015)

Bottom Line: The chosen three parameters form a three-dimensional space in which the samples from the same species can be clustered together and be separated from other species.The resulting averaged discriminant accuracy reaches 98.4% for every two species by the 10 - fold cross validation, while the accuracy reaches 93.96% for all fifteen species.Our method, based on the 2D MF-DFA, provides a feasible and efficient procedure to identify plant species.

ABSTRACT

Background: In this paper, a novel method is proposed to identify plant species by using the two- dimensional multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis (2D MF-DFA). Our method involves calculating a set of multifractal parameters that characterize the texture features of each plant leaf image. An index, I 0, that characterizes the relation of the intra-species variances and inter-species variances is introduced. This index is used to select three multifractal parameters for the identification process. The procedure is applied to the Swedish leaf data set containing leaves from fifteen different tree species.

Results: The chosen three parameters form a three-dimensional space in which the samples from the same species can be clustered together and be separated from other species. Support vector machines and kernel methods are employed to assess the identification accuracy. The resulting averaged discriminant accuracy reaches 98.4% for every two species by the 10 - fold cross validation, while the accuracy reaches 93.96% for all fifteen species.

Conclusions: Our method, based on the 2D MF-DFA, provides a feasible and efficient procedure to identify plant species.

Mentions: To demonstrate our method of identifying plant species by using the leaf texture, we use the Swedish leaf data set [31] for our experiment, which is widely employed in computer vision and pattern recognition fields [4,33,34], plant taxon fields [1] and image processing fields [6,35]. This leaf data set has images of 15 species of leaves with 75 sample images per species. We label the fifteen species by MI, MII, · · ·, MXV (See Figure 1).Figure 1
