Lindenmayer systems (or L-Systems) are a way of modelling plants and other biological organisms using mathematics and simple language tools.
The definitive resource for L-Systems, this University of Calgary site is maintained by Lindenmayers collaborators. It contains many articles, and a full-length copy of 'The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants'.
