Johnson–Mehl tessellations can be considered as the results of spatial birth–growth processes. It is interesting to know when such a birth–growth process is completed within a bounded region. This paper deals with the limiting distributions of the time of completion for various models of Johnson–Mehl tessellations in ℝd and k-dimensional sectional tessellations, where 1 ≦ k < d, by considering asymptotic coverage probabilities of the corresponding Boolean models. Random fractals as the results of birth–growth processes are also discussed in order to show that a birth–growth process does not necessarily lead to a Johnson–Mehl tessellation.
