  abstract =     "This paper reports a comparison of several bloat
                 control methods and also evaluates a new proposal for
                 limiting the size of the individuals: a genetic
                 operator called prune and plant. The aim of this work
                 is to prove the adequacy of this new method. Since a
                 preliminary study of the method has already shown
                 promising results, we have performed a thorough study
                 in a set of benchmark problems aiming at demonstrating
                 the utility of the new approach. Prune and plant has
                 obtained results that maintain the quality of the final
                 solutions in terms of fitness while achieving a
                 substantial reduction of the mean tree size in all four
                 problem domains considered. In addition, in one of
                 these problem domains prune and plant has demonstrated
                 to be better in terms of fitness, size reduction and
                 time consumption than any of the other bloat control
                 techniques under comparison.",
