Obviously, physical characteristics in all living things are determined by DNA and many of those characteristics can be described by the Fibonacci sequence of numbers. A few examples: the number of petals on flowers, the number of nodes on a plant, the spiral of the nautilas shell and the human ear, the number of fingers we have, etc.

I wonder if anyone knows of an academic study of how the Fibonacci sequence might be coded in our DNA or is this idea just plain silly?
