Description:

This applet simulates a world where there are two kinds of plants: white daisies and black daisies. These plants, along with bare ground, cover the planet. There is a fixed death rate, as well as a fixed value for horizontal temperature transport. The plants, however, have different albedos. The user sets the luminosity and when a steady state is reached, the percentage of cover by the daisies and bare ground will be listed, and the final surface temperature will be shown on the thermometer.
