  abstract =     "The paper describes the process of induction of
                 equations for the description of vegetation-induced
                 roughness from several angles. Firstly, it describes
                 two approaches for obtaining theoretically well-founded
                 analytical expressions for vegetation resistance. The
                 first of the two is based on simplified assumptions for
                 the vertical flow profile through and over vegetation,
                 whereas the second is based on an analytical solution
                 to the momentum balance for flow through and over
                 vegetation. In addition to analytical expressions the
                 paper also outlines a numerical 1-DV k-e turbulence
                 model which includes several important features related
                 to the influence plants exhibit on the flow. Last but
                 not least, the paper presents a novel way of applying
                 genetic programming to the results of the 1-DV model,
                 in order to obtain an expression for roughness based on
                 synthetic data. The resulting expressions are evaluated
                 and compared with an independent data set of flume
