Summary Fractal Modelling presents a fascinating world of growth and form, artificial life, computer graphics fractals, marine organisms, and biomonitoring. Using sponges and coral as a case study, the fractal geometry, methods discussed can be applied to various model growth forms and will be useful in studying a variety of forms, as well as environmental influences on the growth process.
