Abstract Automated contour detection for objects representing the Prorocentrum minimum (P. minimum) species in phytoplankton images is the core goal of this study. The speciesis known to cause harmful blooms in many estuarine and coastal environments. Active contour model (ACM)-based image segmentation is the approach adopted here as a potential solution. Currently, the main research in ACM area is highly focused ondevelopment of various energy functions having some physical intuition. This work, by contrast, advocates the idea of rich and diverse image preprocessing before segmentation. Advantage of the proposed preprocessing is demonstrated experimentally by comparing it to the six well known active contour techniques applied to the cell segmentation in microscopy imagery task.
