Mathematical and Image Analysis of Stromatolite Morphogenesis

Batchelor, Murray; Burne, Robert; Henry, B I; Watt, S D

Description

Stromatolites are internally laminated organosedimentary structures that result from the environmental interactions of Benthic Microbial Communities. They have been traditionally described and classified either by quasi-Linnean taxonomic systems or by morphometric schemes. Neither of these approaches has proved entirely satisfactory. The application of the mathematics of evolving surfaces provides a promising alternative for the modelling and classification of stromatolites in terms of their...[Show more]
