This article proposes an investigatory project for the undergraduates of physical and life science students, on the fractal dimension of leaves. Such a project, we hope, can develop an interdisciplinary approach among science students, since it contains physics, mathematics and plant science. Such studies could create among the physical science students a love and an awareness about what is happening around them in nature. Doing such projects by the life science students may make them realize that mathematics is an integral part of nature.
