Real Plants

  1. Plants from literature

    A very famous part of Lindermeyer Systems is the modeling of plants, as you saw on the starting page on the left, where we already inserted a nice visualization of plant development.
    
    Recursions : 6
    Angle      : 22.5
    Axiom      : ++++A
    Rules      : A=F-[[A]+A]+F[+FA]-A
                 F=FF
    


    Note: actually we only adapted the axiom to ++++A ( = 90 to the left) that we get a vertical plant!


    The goal is to describe the development of a plant, and in particular the emergence of plant shape, as the integration of the development and functioning of individual modules.

    Now we would like to show you some more plants using L-systems:
    Recursions : 7 
    Angle      : 22.5
    Axiom      : ++++A
    Rules      : A=F[+A][-A]FA
                 F=FF
    


    Note: actually we only adapted the axiom to ++++A ( = 90 to the left) that we get a vertical plant!


  2. our own

    a thuja-bush
    
    Recursions : 5
    Angle      : 28
    Axiom      : ++++A
    Rules      : A=FF[+B]F[-A]FA
                 B=FF[-A]F[+A]FB
    	     F=FF
    



  3. going further

    It is also possible to grow plants with an 3D-Lsystem. For movies and pictures go here or here
    Some examples:
