  abstract =     "The role of population size is investigated within a
                 neutrality induced local optima free search space.
                 Neutrality decouples genotypic variation in
                 evolvability from fitness variation. Population
                 diversity and neutrality work in conjunction to
                 facilitate evolvability exploration whilst restraining
                 its loss to drift, ultimately facilitating the
                 evolution of evolvability. The characterising dynamics
                 and implications are discussed.",
