The present work focuses on a method for quantitative evaluation of cell structural parameters of plant tissues such as: surface area, perimeter, Feret's diameters, elongation. The method is based on analysis of tissue section images obtained by an optical confocal microscope (Tandem Scanning Reflected Light Microscope TSRLM). Examples of structural parameters distribution for the inner core of potato tuber parenchyma of Danusia variety (Solanum tuberosum v. Danusia) are presented.
