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
