We would like to announce a new tool that helps you learn about plants
by drawing pictures of them. PlantStudio Botanical Illustration Software
uses a simulation model to "grow" drawings of a wide variety of
herbaceous plants such as wildflowers and herbs. Some basic botanical
concepts can be learned by working with the over 200 parameters to
create a wide variety of plants. The results can be used to illustrate
newsletters, web pages, and other graphics projects.

For a limited time, we are giving away free copies of PlantStudio to
people who return completed surveys. 
This offer will be over on June 1, 1998.

For a gallery, screen shots, and info see

With PlantStudio you can 
* design a wide variety of plants
* breed new plants from parents
* create animations of plant growth
* copy plant pictures to the clipboard
* save to DXF format
* create Painter nozzles and Paint Shop Pro tubes 
  to "spray" a picture with plants

You can download a fully-functional evaluation copy of PlantStudio
for Win 95/NT.
