  abstract =     "In this technical note, a genetic programming (GP)
                 approach is employed to predict the soil-water
                 characteristic curve (SWCC) of soils. The GP model
                 requires an input terminal set that consists of initial
                 void ratio, initial gravimetric water content,
                 logarithm of suction normalised with respect to
                 atmospheric air pressure, clay content, and silt
                 content. The output terminal set consists of the
                 gravimetric water content corresponding to the assigned
                 input suction. The function set includes operators such
                 as plus, minus, product, division, and power. Results
                 from pressure plate tests carried out on clay, silty
                 clay, sandy loam, and loam compiled in the SoilVision
                 software were adopted as a database for developing and
                 validating the genetic model. For this purpose, and
                 after data digitisation, GP software (GPLAB) provided
                 by MATLAB was employed for the analysis. Furthermore,
                 GP simulations were compared with the experimental
                 results as well as the models proposed by other
                 investigators. This comparison indicated superior
                 performance of the proposed model for predicting the
