This paper describes a method using L-systems that models tree growth based on the interaction of the tree's internal attributes with themselves and with environmental conditions. Modeled components include chemical flow and water distribution within the tree, phototropism, space tropism, energy generation and usage, weight support, and self-pruning.Our(More)
The Lindenmayer system (L-system) is a popular technique used in the modeling of plants. Common implementations of L-systems incorporate the definition of tree structure into production rules based on observational biological data. These system produces realistic plants, however a changing environment has no affect on results. This paper proposes animating(More)
