Flooding is an expensive operation that is often required in the
operation of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). In this paper, we
present a novel algorithm to reduce the overhead imposed by flooding
operations. The algorithm improves previous results by using a
distributed function to elect the nodes that will provide the highest
additional coverage to previous retransmissions. The algorithm does
not require any signalling or impose special requirements on the
