Abstract


The purpose of this paper is to describe a non-invasive and quantitative imaging analysis method based on elliptic Fourier. Archaeological seeds reduction in size, respect the contemporary fresh seeds used as control, was evaluated to obtain admissible morphometric data. Investigations established different morphological variations between grape seeds ancient cultivars.
