Statistics Applied to Tree Leaves

Statistics task

Hi everybody!

This is a brief description of the task we, Italian team, propose to you.


The starting point is the following question: is there any precise, mathematical relation between the length and the width of a leave?


We tried to answer measuring a lot of leaves of five different kinds of trees (oak, laurel, lemon, olive and pine). We made some statistical calculations: we computed some mean values and dispersion indexes and we also had a graphic view of the distribution of data.


The conclusions are still open and we wait for your measurements in order to compare the results. If there is anything which is not clear, do not hesitate to ask.


Good luck!
