Stomata are the small pores on a surface of leaves which are responsible for the process of respiration. These stomata help plants for intake of carbon-dioxide and release of oxygen. This paper proposes method of identification and automatic counting of stomata on the microscopic image of an epidermis of a leaf. There are various methods of detection and counting of stomata. This paper uses the method of detection and automatic counting of stomata by using morphological operations. There are various morphological operations used in this paper which include dilation, erosion and opening by reconstruction, closing by reconstruction etc. This is most efficient method than others because it gives the efficiency of 94%.
