Semi-automated 3D Leaf Reconstruction and Analysis of Trichome Patterning from Light Microscopic ImagesHenrik Failmezger, Benjamin Jaegle, Andrea Schrader, Martin Hülskamp, Achim TreschPLoS Computational Biology, 2013 View paper
TrichEratops is a software to extract the shape of trichomes. It applies focus stacking on a series of light microscopic pictures. The 3D surface from the stack is reconstructed using Elastic Map fitting. Trichomes can be marked on the Leaf surface and patterning statistics can be calculated from them.
