We would like to announce a new tool that helps you learn botany and
draws plants. PlantStudio Botanical Illustration Software uses a
simulation model to "grow" drawings of a wide variety of herbaceous
(non-woody) plants like wildflowers and herbs. You can use PlantStudio
to learn some basic botany, and you can use your plant pictures to add
life to graphics projects like newsletters and personalized greeting

For a limited time, we are giving away free copies of PlantStudio 
to people who return completed surveys.

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.
