We explore the role of spatial distribution of populations in coevolutionary learning by comparing the performance of several different evolutionary methods on two different tasks. Our experiments show that spatial coevolution is substantially more successful than any of the other methods we tried. One reason for this, demonstrated by our results, is the ability of spatial coevolution to maintain diversity in the host population for long periods during a run.
