I'm trying to create a 3D functional-structural plant model and I need to establish some axioms.
Is it guaranteed or extremely likely that where auxiliary bud forms there's a leaf(s) attached? That's what it appears to be from most of the images I saw. If so, what usually comes first, the leaf or the bud?
More generally, is there a rule about where a leaf is guaranteed to naturally grow? Perhaps suggest some literature on this. Thank you!
