  abstract =     "This paper explores the issues with mapping
                 termination in Grammatical Evolution, and examines
                 approaches that can be used to minimise them. It
                 analyses the traditional approach of reusing the same
                 genetic material, known as wrapping, and shows why this
                 is inefficient with some grammars used in the
                 literature. It suggests the appending of non-coding
                 genetic material to genotype strings, at the start of
                 the run, and shows the benefits of this approach:
                 higher probability of creating terminated individuals,
                 better or similar experimental performance, and a
                 tendency to generate smaller solutions, when compared
                 to the use of wrapping.",
