Abstract: This paper proposes to improve the classification accuracy of the leaf images by extracting texture and statistical features by utilizing the presence of striking features on the dorsal and ventral sides of the leaves, which on other types of objects may not be that prominent. The texture features have been extracted from dorsal, ventral and a combination of dorsal-ventral sides of leaf images using Gray level co-occurrence matrix. In addition to this, this work also uses certain general statistical features for discriminating them into various classes. The feature selection work has been performed separately for the dorsal, ventral and combined data sets (for both texture and statistical features) using the most common feature selection algorithms. After selecting the relevant features, the classification has been done using the classification algorithms: K-Nearest Neighbor, J48, Naïve Bayes, Partial Least Square (PLS), Classification and Regression Tree (CART), Classification Tree(CT). The classification accuracy has been calculated and compared to find which side of the leaf image (dorsal or ventral) gives better results with which type of features(texture or statistical). This study reveals that the ventral leaf features can be another alternative in discriminating the leaf images into various classes.
