Description

PhenoPhyte is a web-based application that allows plant area to be calculated from photos of Arabidopsis rosettes taken using a defined imaging protocol. Although developed and optimized for use with Arabidopsis rosettes, it can be used with rosettes or detached leaves from other species.

The application can quantify plant growth by taking a series of images over time and herbivory using before and after images. Images must include a color checker (like the Gretag Macbeth Mini Color Checker) so that image normalization can be automatically performed to correct for color variations (due to differences in lighting, camera, lens, etc) and to standardize the images with respect to pixel size.
