The Artificial Life of Plants

  title={The Artificial Life of Plants},
  author={Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz and Mark Hammel and R. Mech and Jim Hanan},
In these notes we survey applications of L-systems to the modeling of plants, with an emphasis on the results obtained since the comprehensive presentation of this area in Th Algorithmic Beauty of Plants [61]. The new developments include: a better understanding of theoretical issues pertinent to graphical applications of Lsystems, extensions to programming techniques based on L-systems, and an extension of the range of phenomena expressible using L-systems.
