Accurate monitoring of leaves and plants is a necessity for research on plant physiology. To aid this biological research, we propose a new active contour method to track individual leaves in chlorophyll fluorescence time laps sequences. The proposed active contour algorithm is developed such that it can handle sequences with low temporal resolution. This paper proposes a novel optimization method which incorporates prior knowledge about the plant shape. Tests show that the proposed framework outperforms state of the art tracking methods.
