                 L-system representation in order to generate
                 artificial-life style plants for virtual work. Acting
                 as a virtual gardener, a human selects which plants to
                 breed, producing a unique new generation of plants. An
                 experiment involving a simulation-style fitness
                 function was also performed, and the virtual plants
                 adapted to maximize the fitness function.",
