  abstract =     "An important problem of evolutionary algorithms is
                 that throughout evolution they loose genetic diversity.
                 Many techniques have been developed for maintaining
                 diversity in genetic algorithms, but few investigations
                 have been done for genetic programs. We define here a
                 diversity measure for genetic programs based on our
                 metric for genetic trees. We use this distance measure
                 for studying the effects of fitness sharing. We then
                 propose a method for adaptively maintaining the
                 diversity of a population during evolution.",
