On the Applicability of L-systems and Iterated Function Systems for Grammatical Synthesis of 3D Models [chapter]

Luis E. Da Costa, Jacques-Andr'e Landry
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The objective of this project is to explore the feasibility of constructing a computer vision system able to synthesize the 3D model of a plant from a 2D representation.  ...  We are also presenting the extent of applicability of L-systems and iterated function systems for solving our problem, and present some ideas in pursue of a solution in this novel manner.  ...  The most commonly used models are called L-Systems, which are grammatical rewriting rules introduced in 1968 by Lindenmayer [2] to build a formal description of the development of a simple multicelular  ...

1995 Biological Conservation  
and the implementation of a range of possible modified timber harvesting practices in two wood production blocks within the montane ash forests of the central highlands of Victoria, south-eastern Australia  ...  The results of our analyses revealed that under the existing conservation strategies there was a high probability of extinction over the next 150 years in both blocks.  ...  This study was confined to a limited comparison of some management options for the conservation of G. leadbeateri.  ...

Indicators of Biodiversity for Ecologically Sustainable Forest Management

David B. Lindenmayer, Chris R. Margules, Daniel B. Botkin
2000 Conservation Biology

The idea of generative modeling is to allow the generation of highly complex objects based on a set of formal construction rules.  ...  Using these construction rules, a shape is described by a sequence of processing steps, rather than just by the result of all applied operations: Shape design becomes rule design.  ...  Early systems based on grammars were Lindenmayer systems, short L-systems, named after ARISTID LINDENMAYER (Prusinkiewicz and Lindenmayer, 1990) .  ...

Modelling the inter-relationships between habitat patchiness, dispersal capability and metapopulation persistence of the endangered species, Leadbeater's possum, in south-eastern Australia

D. B. Lindenmayer, H. P. Possingham
1996 Landscape Ecology  
A computer simulation model was used to derive estimates of the probability of extinction of populations of the endangered species, Leadbeater's Possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeuteri), inhabiting ensembles  ...  Data on the habitat patches were extracted from forest inventory information that had been captured in the database of a Geographic Informa-VICTORIA  ...  Our work has benefited from discussions with a wide range of colleagues including Dr. R. Lacy Smith, Mr. M. Macfarlane, and many others too numerous to mention. Comments on the manuscript by Dr. B.  ...

A landscape-scale test of the predictive ability of a spatially explicit model for population viability analysis

Lindenmayer D.B., I. Ball, H.P. Possingham, M.A. Mccarthy, M.L. Pope
2001 Journal of Applied Ecology  
Given this, we have limited the description of major results to a brief summary of key outcomes of the four scenarios.  ...  These general themes were apparent from the comparisons of model output and actual abundance across all four scenarios, and thus irrespective of the level of model complexity invoked (i.e. the addition  ...

Critical Ecological Roles, Structural Attributes and Conservation of Old Growth Forest: Lessons From a Case Study of Australian Mountain Ash Forests

David Lindenmayer, Elle Bowd
2022 Frontiers in Forests and Global Change  
Climate change is also a driver of old growth decline both through elevating the mortality of large old living trees and underpinning an increase in the frequency of high severity wildfire.  ...  We argue that a first step must be to cease all commercial logging in the Mountain Ash ecosystem to allow new cohorts of old growth forest to be recruited and thereby expand the extent of the old growth  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Lachlan McBurney and the late Dave Blair for their outstanding field work in gathering some of the key datasets which underpin this manuscript.  ...

Identifying the location of fire refuges in wet forest ecosystems

Laurence E. Berry, Don A. Driscoll, John A. Stein, Wade Blanchard, Sam C. Banks, Ross A. Bradstock, David B. Lindenmayer
2015 Ecological Applications  
Under extreme fire conditions, the distribution of fire refuges was limited to only extremely sheltered, fire-resistant regions of the landscape.  ...  We examined the relationship between the probability of fire refuge occurrence as predicted by an existing fire refuge model and fire severity experienced during a large wildfire.  ...  ROC was used over simple classification accuracy measures as it enabled the comparison of different classification systems (Hand and Till 2001) .  ...

2001 Oikos  
The results of a landscape-scale test of ALEX, a widely used metapopulation model for Population Viability Analysis (PVA), are described.  ...  ALEX produced a better fit to the field data than the naïve null model for the number of patches occupied by the laughing kookaburra.  ...  Lindenmayer and a wide range of other colleagues made extensive comments that improved the manuscript.  ...

Induction of a marsupial density model using genetic programming and spatial relationships

P.A Whigham
2000 Ecological Modelling  
The ability of the learning system to express spatial relationships allows an improved predictive model to be developed, which is both parsimonious and understandable.  ...  However, most learning approaches are based on a propositional language for the development of models and therefore cannot express a wide range of possible spatial relationships that exist in the data.  ...  The anonymous reviewers are also acknowledged for assisting with the structure and direction of the final document.  ...
