View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is the first book to provide current knowledge of biophysically-based models of light interaction with plants aiming at realistic image synthesis of plants. These models were developed using computer graphics techniques and biological data. The modeling approach involves the use of rendering algorithms, such as ray tracing and Monte Carlo Methods, to simulate light propagation within plant tissues. The same research methodology described in the book can be applied to other organic materials such as skin, hair and eye tissues. Since the processes of light interaction with plants are central in environmental studies, scientific applications also include projects towards ecology, agriculture, forestry and remote sensing. The authors describe these processes and how they determine plant appearance characteristics such as color, gloss and translucency. The authors discuss how computer models can be used to investigate plant interaction with the environment.
