  abstract =     "We investigate the dynamics of agent groups evolved to
                 peform a collective task, and in which the behavioural
                 heterogeneity of the group is under evolutionary
                 control. Two task domains are studied: solutions are
                 evolved for the two tasks using an evolutionary
                 algorithm called the Legion system. A new metric of
                 heterogeneity is also introduced, which measures the
                 heterogeneity of evolved group behaviours. It was found
                 that the amount of heterogeneity evolved in an agent
                 group is dependent on the given problem domain: for the
                 first task, the Legion system evolved heterogeneous
                 groups; for the second task, primarily homogeneous
                 groups evolved. We conclude that the proposed system,
                 in conjunction with the introduced heterogeneity
                 measure, can be used as a tool for investigating
                 various issues concerning redundancy, robustness and
                 division of labour in the context of evolutionary
                 approaches to collective problem solving.",
