This paper provides a bare-bone introduction to evolutionary and bio-inspired metaheuristic in the context of environmental greenhouse control. Besides presenting general evolutionary algorithm principles, specific details are provided regarding the genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization and differential evolution techniques. A review of these algorithms within greenhouse control applications is presented, both for single and multiple objectives, as well as current trends.
