rabbit sequence

[′ab·ət ′sē·kwəns]
(mathematics)
A sequence of binary numbers that is recursively generated by the rules 0→1 (young rabbits grow old) and 1→10 (old rabbits stay old and beget young ones); beginning with a single 1, successive generations are 1, 10, 101, 10110, 10110101, and so forth.

When I draw trees, I'll remind myself of the rabbit sequence and the growth points of that tree that grow in the same sequence.
