  abstract =     "We propose replacing the traditional tree depth limit
                 in Genetic Programming by a single limit on the amount
                 of resources available to the whole population, where
                 resources are the tree nodes. The resource-limited
                 technique removes the disadvantages of using depth
                 limits at the individual level, while introducing
                 automatic population resizing, a natural side-effect of
                 using an approach at the population level. The results
                 show that the replacement of individual depth limits by
                 a population resource limit can be done without
                 impairing performance, thus validating this first and
                 important step towards a new approach to improving the
                 efficiency of GP.",
