  abstract =     "We build on our previous feasibility studies [18,20],
                 which demonstrated the impact of evaluation during
                 development in the DEVTAG system, and here present a
                 full-fledged developmental system - Developmental Tree
                 Adjoining Grammar Guided Genetic Programming (DTAG3P)
                 with developmental evaluation, based on Tree-Adjoining
                 Grammars (TAG). While DEVTAG used only a trivial
                 developmental process, DTAG3P uses L-systems to encode
                 TAG derivation trees, because the L-systems permit a
                 full developmental process. DEVTAG was previously shown
                 to dramatically out-perform standard Genetic
                 Programming (GP) on some structured families of
                 problems; here, we examine DTAG3P's performance on
                 these families, and find a further major increment in
                 performance over DEVTAG. DTAG3P achieves this despite
                 dispensing with two extra control parameters which were
                 necessary with DEVTAG.",
