Prusinkiewicz & Lindenmeyer [et al]

"The Algorithmic Beauty Of Plants" (review) Springer-Verlag, 1990.

Now a classic computer graphics book, this text provides insight into the use of L-systems for the modelling of plant life. It presents the L-grammar clearly and simply with ample illustrations and examples.

This book provides information forming the basis for much exciting work in plant modelling as presented at SIGGRAPH over the years. It is a collection of work from numerous papers by the authors, is well presented both visually and verbally.

Certainly a book to read if you wish to start using L-systems. This can then lead onto the further developments as published in the annual SIGGRAPH proceedings.
