In this chapter several methods for modelling biological objects are discussed. The methods described in this chapter have the potentiality to serve as morphological models of biological objects. In the first section a model for pattern formation, based on diffusing chemicals, is described. In Sect. 2.2 the iteration processes and fractals which form the general base of the methods described in the Sects. 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 and, 2.6 are discussed. In the last section of this chapter a review is given of the methods mentioned in the chapter and arguments are given as to which method is the most applicable for morphological models of growth processes.
