  abstract =     "This chapter presents a personal perspective on the
                 relation between theory and practice in genetic
                 programming. It posits that genetic programming
                 practise (including both applications and technique
                 enhancements) is moving toward biology and that it
                 should continue to do so. It suggests as a consequence
                 that future-oriented genetic programming theory
                 (mathematical theory, developed to help analyse,
                 understand, and predict system behaviour) should also
                 borrow, increasingly, from biology. It presents
                 specific challenges for theory vis-a-vis recent
                 technique a enhancements, and briefly discusses
                 possibilities for new forms of theory that will be
                 relevant to the leading edge of genetic programming
