+Title:
+
+  Plant Modeling Using Environmental Parameters
+
+Summary:
+
+  The project will focus on modeling natural looking plants using
+  simulated environment parameters to control growth and evolution of
+  different plant species. Genetic algorithms or other evolutionary
+  techniques will be used to evolve plant suitable for growth in various
+  environments.
+
+Potential environmental conditions:
+
+  - Availability of water
+  - Amount of sunlight
+  - Soil conditions
+  - Growth elevation
+
+Potential plant species parameters:
+
+  - Rate of water loss
+  - Food and water storage capability
+  - Total mass/volume
+  - Crown height
+  - Leaf area
+  - Root structures
