Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This letter describes an evolutionary system for creating lifelike three-dimensional plants and flowers, our main goal being the facilitation of producing realistic plant imagery. With these two goals in mind - ease of generation and realism - we designed the plant genotype and the genotype-to-phenotype mapping. Diversity in our system comes about through two distinct processes - evolution and randomization - allowing the creation not only of single plants but of entire gardens and forests. Thus, we are able to readily produce natural-looking artificial scenes.
