  abstract =     "In tree-based genetic programming (GP), the most
                 frequent subtrees on later generations are likely to
                 constitute useful partial solutions. This paper
                 investigates the effect of encapsulating such subtrees
                 by representing them as atoms in the terminal set, so
                 that the subtree evaluations can be exploited as
                 terminal data. The encapsulation scheme is compared
                 against a second scheme which depends on random subtree
                 selection. Empirical results show that both schemes
                 improve upon standard GP.",
