[Vegetal] Proliferation Analyses

Vegetal proliferation was a third variable that was considered as an important factor in determining the projective morphology of such riverine systems.  The following visualization were produced from an earlier work studying the distributional growth of Spartina Alterniflora and Zostera Marina (two of the identified potential projective species).  Their root growth is simulated using Grasshopper.  The script was produced in collaboration with Xu Han for Ceci N'est Pas un Canal.
