14. Conclusions

This document presented a review of selected models of morphogenesis that use computer graphics techniques to visualize the results of simulations. These models can be used for image synthesis purposes and provide a research tool for studying morphogenesis in nature.

In the absence of formal measures of what makes two patterns look alike, visual inspection is a valuable method for comparing the models with reality. Photorealistic presentation adds credibility to this inspection by removing artifacts that might affect the comparisons.
