Do Fibonacci numbers reveal the involvement of geometrical imperatives or biological interactions in phyllotaxis?

2006 Botanical journal of the Linnean Society  
This paper reviews the fundamental properties of number sequences, and discusses the under-appreciated limitations of the Fibonacci sequence for describing phyllotactic patterns.  ...  A favourite botanical example is the apparent relationship between phyllotaxis (i.e. the arrangements of leaf homologues such as foliage leaves and floral organs on shoot axes) and the intriguing Fibonacci  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This paper is dedicated to my friend Don Kaplan on the occasion of his retirement from the University of California, Berkeley.  ...

Non-functional biomimicry: utilizing natural patterns in order to provoke attention responses

Bryan G. Young, Andrew Wodehouse
2016 International Journal of Design Creativity and Innovation  
Natural reoccurring patterns arise from chaos and are prevalent throughout nature. The formation of these patterns is controlled by, or produces, underlying geometrical structures.  ...  The results showed that the underlying geometry of natural patterns has the potential to induce attention responses to a statistically significant level.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Kim Williams for proofreading the document.
