Here are the phyllotaxis movies that I use in my Geometry of Art and Nature class. Either grab the animated gifs shown below or click on one to get a mp4 movie version. The small tool in fib.f90.tbz generates data files containing the (x,y) positions of the N particles. Each data file can be plotted to form one frame of a movie.
