Recently there has been much interest in the role of indirect genetic encodings; as a means to achieve increased evolvability. From this perspective, artificial ontogenies have largely been seen as a vehicle to relate the indirect encodings to complex phenotypes. However, the introduction of a development phase does not come without other consequences. We show that the conjunction of the latent ontogenic structure and the common practice of only evaluating the final phenotype obtained from… CONTINUE READING
