Leaf area measurement technology

We have used with good success the leaf area meter (and conveyor belt 
system) by LiCor.  It gives all the variables you are looking for and 
allows you to import the data into a spreadsheet quite easily.

We have also used hand-held scanners as well as flatbed scanners to 
in-vivo measurements of leaf areas.

The image processing software that we have used for the latter is NIH 
Image.  It is free and allows you do some fairly advanced manipulations.  
You can do a search on Lycos or Yahoo for the title and it will come up 
with the address.

Good Luck,
