  abstract =     "examines the behaviour of bloat for GP tree structures
                 using three different topologies: a panmictic, ring and
                 star structure. Initially genetic drift is examined and
                 the results showing the influence of a lower absorbing
                 boundary are examined for each space. A simple
                 selection model is then applied and analysed for bloat.
                 A conjecture regarding the influence of inbreeding, due
                 to spatial structure, is presented as one mechanism for
                 bloat reduction. The paper shows that
                 spatially-structured GP results in a tradeoff between
                 convergence, diversity and the size of individuals.",
