Abstract

Many structures in biological systems are organised in self-similar patterns. These can often be described conveniently using fractal analysis techniques. In this chapter we show how fractal analysis can provide numerical measures that can help in automated classification and taxonomy of biological tissue types. We examine the limits of the fractal model, and how multifractal analysis and the local connected fractal dimension can address this question.
