This is really simple example, really. I published it here cause I really was fascinated how computed shape of leaf reminds the real one. This attemp was inpired by ivy leaf of course, and also by my personal "thesis" - that ivy leaf shape is "designed" to obtain as much sun as possible (obviously(?) yes).

Now something about effective area - that is only area, nothing more. I planned to do some more "research" how leafs would change when they will be introduced to third dimension(self shadowing). But due to lack of time and grasshopper limits(sorry) (shadows probably would require meshing leafs which could take a long time) this example will not be developed more ;/

very nice! how did you define the fitness factor here? What's the "effective area" of the leaves?
pytam po obcemu żeby Twoja odpowiedź przydała się szerszej publiczności :)
