[Use of automated microscopic image analysis for the determination of microscopic hyphomycetes (Fusarium sp.)]
Hagen B., Hagen C.
The method of automated microscopic image analysis was tested in intention to support the taxonomy of Fusarium. The catalogue of morphometric object features of the software system AMBA provides size and shape parameters which can be utilize to discriminate populations of macroconidia of different Fusarium species and varieties. The applied colouring of macroconidia (methylene blue) has no significant effect on these features. The results of statistical analysis show fitness of chosen technique.
