  abstract =     "In nature it is common for organisms, as quoted from
                 (Kozlowski and Steams, 1989), to produce many offspring
                 and then neglect, abort, reabsorb, or eat some of them,
                 or allow them to eat each other. This phenomenon is
                 known variously as soft selection, brood selection,
                 spontaneous abortion, and a host of other terms
                 depending upon both semantics and the stage of ontogeny
                 and/or development at which the culling of offspring
                 takes place. The bottom line of this behaviour in
                 nature is the reduction of parental resource investment
                 in offspring who are potentially less fit than others.
                 The use of brood selection in genetic programming was
                 first suggested in (Altenberg, 1993, 1994) as a method
                 to select for representations of CTP with greater
                 evolvability under recombination. We show that brood
                 selection has benefits to artificial genetic systems
                 analogous to those it confers upon biological genetic
                 systems, specifically in terms of conservation of CPU
                 investment and memory investment",
