Abstract

The examples of trees presented in the previous chapter introduce L- systems as a plant modeling tool. They also illustrate one of the most striking features of the generative approach to modeling, called data base amplification [136]. This term refers to the generation of complex- looking objects from very concise descriptions—in our case, L-systems comprised of small numbers of productions. Yet in spite of the small size, the specification of L-systems is not a trivial task.
