Project Description:
The word phyllotaxis translates to the arrangement of lateral organs on plants. These can be leaves, needles, on a cactus, or seeds on a sunflower. There are several different patterns of how these organs can be organized.

The authors have explored the use of nature's phyllotactic patterns to inform the layout of hierarchical data. These naturally occurring patterns provide a non-overlapping, optimal packing when the total number of nodes is not known a priori. PhylloTrees: Phyllotactic Patterns for Tree Layout are a family of expandable tree layouts that they developed based on these patterns.
