Abstract

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