A set of 10, chosen medicinal plants (some of them with a reputation as remedies for tuberculosis) has been investigated through Partitioned Iterated Function Systems-Semi Fractals with Angle (PIFS-SFA) coding, Lempel, Ziv, Welch with quantization and noise (LZW-QN) compression, and surface density statistics (f(α)-SDS) discrimination techniques. The final outcomes of this quantitative analysis were, firstly: the linear ordering of the plants in question accompanied by the hope that it reflects their medical significance, secondly: the mathematical representation of each of the plants, and thirdly: the impressive compression achieved, leading to remarkable computer memory saving, and still permitting successful pattern recognition i.e., proper identification of the plant from the compressed image.
