Electronic supplementary material: Three-dimensional images and growth movies
With the electronic supplementary material on these webpages (these were included on the CDROM accompanying the thesis), you will be
able to watch all the coral models shown in the thesis figures
interactively in three dimensions, turning them around with your
mouse. Also, you can watch their growth in two sets of
(non-interactive) MPEG-1 movie files. The first set shows the growth
from a fixed viewpoint. In the second set of movies the corals rotate
while growing, to enable you to watch their morphogenesis from all
Please follow the steps below to watch the supplementary material.
- Install a VRML plug-in for the three-dimensional images, such as the Cortona VRML client for Windows and Macintosh. Installation instructions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux/Unix systems are given here.
- An MPEG-player should be installed on
most Windows, Macintosh and Linux/Unix-systems. If it appears that you cannot play the
movies on your system, please follow these instructions to install one.
VRML viewer installed? MPEG player is working?
Watch the movies and three-dimensional images below.
You can find movies and three-dimensional images for all the
results of the accretive growth models shown in Chapters four, five
and seven. Please click the chapter for which you would like to
see the electronic material.
Try out the "Turing test"!
Compare the results of the polyp
oriented radiate accretive growth model to three-dimensional scans
of specimens of the stony coral Madracis mirabilis.
