Acquisition of ecophysiologically relevant morphometric data of fossil leaves

MORPYHLL - database for acquisition of ecophysiologically relevant morphometric data of fossil leaves

The showcase below demonstrates the applied methods and data types stored in the database. For further details see "Methods".
The different types of leaf outlines can toggled on and off in the upper right corner of the image. The scale is represented by grid cells of 1x1 cm². Quantitative data below are based on the replenished leaf outline.
