Description/Abstract

There are many di?erent ways in which complex morphologies can be represented. While a simple string representation could be su?cient, often the most impressive arti?cial life simulations utilise. Context Free Grammars (1994, Karl Sims) or Recursive Tree Structures. When modelling a complex morphology using these encodings, it is possible to harness the creatures complex modularity to create more sensible and ?t individuals. This article aims to compare and contrast the varying a?ects of evolutionary algorithms which utilise or disregard the organisms modularity.
