ABSTRACT
An L-system or Lindenmayer system consists of a
grammar and an interpreter. The grammar contains an
axiom, usually a short string, that the grammar expands
into a long, complex string. The interpreter then renders
the string into an object. The first use of L-systems
was to provide morphological models of plants. In this
exploratory initial study we use an evolutionary algorithm
to evolve interpreters for L-systems. The interpreter is
