L-systems are parallel generative grammars that can model branching structures. Taking a graphical object and attempting to derive an L-system describing it is a hard problem. Grammatical Evolution (GE) is an evolutionary technique aimed at creating grammars describing the legal structures an object can take. We use GE to evolve L-systems, and investigate the effect of elitism, and the form of the underlying grammar.
