                 The goal is to understand the importance of such
                 measures and their relationship with fitness. Diversity
                 methods and measures from the literature are surveyed
                 and a selected set of measures are applied to common
                 standard problem instances in an experimental study.
                 Results show the varying definitions and behaviours of
                 diversity and the varying correlation between diversity
                 and fitness during different stages of the evolutionary
                 process. Populations in the genetic programming
                 algorithm are shown to become structurally similar
                 while maintaining a high amount of behavioural
                 differences. Conclusions describe what measures are
                 likely to be important for understanding and improving
                 the search process and why diversity might have
                 different meaning for different problem domains.",
