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.
