Plate 30. (enlarge)
A three-dimensional model of roots interacting with water in soil. Water concentration is visualized by semi-transparent iso-surfaces surrounding the roots. As a result of competition for water, the roots grow away from each other. The divergence between their main axes depends on the spread of the rootlets, which grow faster on the left then on the right.
