Abstract

The role that cell division patterns play on the shape of an organism is quite significant. The relationship between such division patterns and meristem development has been extensively studied in the literature. This paper presents several two- and three-dimensional map and cellwork L-system models that simulate patterns described by Lück and Lück [11]. The advantage of these models over their predecessors is that, through the use of a geometric model to determine cell shape, they can be translated into a visual form quite easily in order to animate (and validate) the growth of the meristem.
