Abstract

We present an application of circular-harmonic filters (CHF’s) for the recognition of planktonic microorganisms. CHF’s discriminated both genera Acartia and Calanus. The symmetry of genus Acartia permitted discrimination to the species and sex levels, whereas the asymmetry of the genus Calanus permitted discrimination only to the generic level. The differences among organisms of different sex of the genus Calanus could not be detected by these particular CHF’s. More research needs to be carried out with more complex CHF’s to enhance their performance and to permit the implementation of an automated optodigital system to identify and count marine microorganisms.
