The morphogenesis of the color pattern of animals is modeled with cellular automata. The cell-cell near neighbor interactions are taken into account and impose restrictions on the model. The allowed patterns are observed in reptiles, felines and fishes.
The morphogenesis of the color pattern of animals is modeled within the framework of a clonal model. The model takes into account the, sometimes conflicting, cell-cell and cell-background interactions. The color patterns of some reptiles and mammals are found to be consistent with the predictions of the model.
