A systematic method of the description of the temporal growth of trees is presented by defining the age of each branch as the number of bifurcation times occurring in the development process from original ancestor branch to the progeny branch. It is shown that the Fibonacci branching, in which the population of terminal branches increases in the course of time following the Fibonacci number series, is a direct consequence of the apical dominance phenomenon in branch growth. Stochastic nature of… CONTINUE READING
