L systems are language-theoretic models for developmental

biology. They wereintroduced in 1968 by Aristid Lindenmayer

(1925-1989) and have proved to be among the most beautiful

examples of interdisciplinary science, where work in one

area induces fruitful ideas and results in other areas. L

systemsare based on relational and set-theoretic concepts,

which are more suitable for the discrete and combinatorial

structures of biology than mathematical models based on

calculus or statistics. L systems have stimulated new work

not only in the realistic simulation of developing organisms

but also in the theory of automata and formal languages,

formal power series, computer graphics, and combinatorics of


This book contains research papers by almost all leading

authorities and by many of the most promising young

researchers in the field. The 28 contributions are organized

in sections on basic L systems, computer graphics, graph

grammars and map L systems, biological aspects and models,

and variations and generalizations of L systems. The

introductory paper by Lindenmayer and J}rgensen was written

for a wide audience and is accessible to the non-specialist


The volume documents the state of the art in the theory of L

systems and their applications. It will interest researchers

and advanced students in theoretical computer science and

developmental biology as well as professionals in computer
