write4u Posted February 10, 2021 Report Share Posted February 10, 2021 (edited) I believe the Fibonacci Sequence is ubiquitous in nature due to natural selection of growth pattern efficiency. The Fibonacci Sequence has very practical survival utility; It affords maximum use of space for collection of sunlight and petal and seed placement. a) it forms a perfectly balanced structure in vertical growth. Almost all vertical growing organisms utilize the FS . Branch growth in trees follow almost always the FS. http://www.eniscuola.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/fillotassi_en.jpg b) it is the most efficient distribution format in plant petal growth and seed distribution. Daisies almost always have FS sequential petal growth. Pine cone seeds are arranged in FS. Sunflowers seed are arranged in FS sequences. Flowers The Fibonacci sequence can be seen in two different places in flowers. The most visible place is the petals of a flower. Several flowers have petals that are numbers of the fibonacci sequence. Lilies have 3 petals, buttercups have 5 petals, and daisies have 34 petals, for example. Scientists have theorized that petals that fit the Fibonacci sequence absorb more sunlight, among other uses. https://www.mensaforkids.org/teach/lesson-plans/fabulous-fibonacci/ http://www.eniscuola.net/en/2016/06/27/the-numbers-of-nature-the-fibonacci-sequence/ https://interestingengineering.com/mother-natures-favorite-number-sequence-the-fibonacci Edited February 10, 2021 by write4u Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
