Abstract—In the paper, two important virtual plant modeling methods, dual-scale automata and L-system, are introduced firstly. According to structure characteristics of wheat root, the morphological structure model of wheat root is then constructed using combination of dual-scale automaton and L system. In view of the environment factors that affect growth of wheat roots, we construct the growth restricted model of wheat roots, and combine it with morphological structure model. The dynamic growth simulation of wheat root is obtained.

Index Terms—artificial life, wheat roots, dual-scale automaton, L system, growth restricted model.
