We introduce a class of biologically-motivated algorithms for generating leaf venation patterns. These algorithms simulate the interplay between three processes: (1) development of veins towards hormone (auxin) sources embedded in the leaf blade; (2) modification of the hormone source distribution by the proximity of veins; and (3) modification of both the vein pattern and source distribution by leaf growth. These processes are formulated in terms of iterative geometric operations on sets of… Expand
Simulation and visualization of adapting venation patterns
TLDR
A procedural biologically motivated method to simulate the development of leaf contours and the generation of different levels of leaf venation systems, which simulates leaf forms ranging from simple shapes to lobed leaves. Expand
Procedural techniques for simulating the growth of plant leaves and adapting venation patterns
TLDR
This paper presents biologically-motivated a procedural method for the simulation of leaf contour growth and venation development that consists of a Voronoi-Diagram that is discretised along the vein structures. Expand
In silico leaf venation networks: growth and reorganization driven by mechanical forces.
TLDR
The results suggest that the local structure of venation networks results from a reorganization driven by mechanical forces, independently of how veins form, supported by recent observations of vein development in young leaves and by the good quantitative agreement between simulations and data from mature leaves.

Leaf Extraction and Analysis Framework Graphical User Interface: Segmenting and Analyzing the Structure of Leaf Veins and Areoles1[W][OA]
TLDR
The Leaf Extraction and Analysis Framework Graphical User Interface (LEAF GUI), a user-assisted software tool that facilitates improved empirical understanding of leaf network structure, is introduced. Expand

TLDR
A mathematical model based on the positive feedback regulation between plant hormone auxin and its efflux carrier can produce diverse leaf venation patterns with spatial regularity under similar conditions to those of leaf development, that is, in the presence of leaf expansion and auxin sink. Expand
Computational models of plant development and form.
TLDR
The modeling techniques and selected models that are designed to elucidate plant development in mechanistic terms are surveyed, with an emphasis on the currently most extensively developed theme: the role of auxin in plant morphogenesis. Expand
Decoding Leaf Hydraulics with a Spatially Explicit Model: Principles of Venation Architecture and Implications for Its Evolution
TLDR
Both vein hierarchy and vein tapering increased Kx relative to xylem construction cost, and the results highlight the important consequences of venation traits for the economics, ecology, and evolution of plant transport capacity. Expand
Reading the leaves: A comparison of leaf rank and automated areole measurement for quantifying aspects of leaf venation1
TLDR
This paper examines 120 leaves distributed across vascular plants using two approaches: a semiquantitative scoring system called “leaf ranking,” devised by the late Leo Hickey, and an automated image-analysis protocol, and concludes that subjective leaf rank provides a relatively consistent, semiquanitative measure of areole size among other variables. Expand
Models of Vascular Pattern Formation in Leaves.
TLDR
A series of models based on canalization hypothesis using carrier proteins are evaluated, finding that the ‘‘flux bifurcator'' level is enhanced in cells with a high auxin flux and that it causes reallocation of auxin carriers toward neighbouring cells also having a high bifurbation level. Expand
Integrating Physiology and Architecture in Models of Fruit Expansion
TLDR
This work presents a 3D functional-structural fruit model that can be used to investigate effects of the principle architectural properties on fruit quality and shows how fruit shape affects vascular patterns and, as a consequence, the distribution of sugar/water in tomato fruit. Expand

Evolution and Function of Leaf Venation Architecture: A Review
TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge of interrelationships between the form and function of leaf venation and the evolution of Leaf venation patterns and refers to the topic of individual and intraspecific variation. Expand
Constitutive property of the local organization of leaf venation networks.
TLDR
A numerical image processing has been developed, specially designed for a quantitative analysis of this type of network, which reveals a surprising property of reticula's nodes: the angles between vein segments are very well defined and it is shown that they are directly related by the radii of the segments.

The leaf venation as formed in a tensorial field
TLDR
It is shown here that the topology of these patterns rather corresponds to what is expected from growth in a tensorial stress field, and suggests a set of hypotheses which is new but supported by known physiological data. Expand
Growth dynamics underlying petal shape and asymmetry
TLDR
A model is developed and used to show that a key aspect of shape—petal asymmetry—in the petal lobe of Antirrhinum depends on the direction of growth rather than regional differences in growth rate, implying that long-range signals orient growth along the petals as a whole. Expand

A model is proposed in which a few simple coupled biochemical reactions are able to generate complex linear appearing structures and networks that show self-regulating properties and other features found in the leaf vascular system, the pattern of tracheae in insect epidermis, and other biological networks.

Several hypotheses have been formed to explain vein pattern formation. Sachs proposed that veins develop as a result of the gradual canalisation of auxin: the auxin transport capacity of some cellExpand
CLASSIFICATION OF THE ARCHITECTURE OF DICOTYLEDONOUS LEAVES

A rigorous method of describing the features of leaves is of immediate usefulness in both modern and fossil taxonomic studies, and it is anticipated that leaves will play an increasingly important part in phylogenetic and ecological studies. Expand
Physically‐based simulation of plant leaf growth
TLDR
Numerical simulations indicate that different portions of the leaf expand at different rates, which is consistent with the biological observations in the growth of a plant leaf. Expand
