I just finished a small, demo exercise on fractal dimension of a plant by using MATLAB and box-count method. There were two different treatments. A plant treated with a specific hormone and a plant without treated with anything.
Above there are the initial pictures of these plants [treated and untreated].
Here are the logarithmic plots for these two treatments
Finally i got the derivatives of ln(N)/ln(R) and as you can see :
So after all these photos the fractal dimension of treated plant was 1.8853 and the dimension of the untreated was 1.9322
So i would like to understand what these two number expressing. Can we get a conclusion about these two different treatments ?
Also in the derivative plots. What the (kind-of) lineal part of the function means ? Can we say that in these regions our image acts like a fractal?
