The Analysis of Leaf Shape Using Fractal Geometry.
Hartvigsen, Gregg
American Biology Teacher, v62 n9 p664-69 Nov-Dec 2000
Describes ways to examine leaf structure and shape using fractal geometry. Students can test hypotheses using the leaves of replicated plants to look for non-linear trends in leaf shape along the stems of plants, across species, and under different environmental growth conditions. (SAH)
