Abstract Inspired by a similar program introduced by Richard Dawkins, our program provides a dynamic updating display of primitive animated SVG biomorphs. Our SVG biomorphs evolves on the screen under the influence of mouse interactions that guide mutations along an evolutionary path. Genes control organism traits which are realized in SVG with JavaScript animation. JavaScript events trigger selective mutation forming the interface for user interaction. This paper describes a system of dynamic shape-based organisms with quantitative traits, evolving from simple to complex organisms through user selection.
