A multi-layered algorithm is proposed that provides a scalable and adaptive method for handling data on a wireless sensor network. Statistical tests, local feedback and global genetic style material exchange ensure limited resources such as battery and bandwidth are used efficiently by manipulating data at the source and important features in the time series are not lost when compression needs to be made. The approach leads to a more 'hands off' implementation which is demonstrated by a real
