  abstract =     "An often-mentioned issue with Grammatical Evolution is
                 that a small change in the genotype, through mutation
                 or crossover, may completely change the meaning of all
                 of the following genes. This paper analyses the
                 crossover and mutation operations in GE, in particular
                 examining the constructive or destructive nature of
                 these operations when occurring at points throughout a
                 genotype. The results we present show some strong
                 support for the idea that events occurring at the first
                 positions of a genotype are indeed more destructive,
                 but also indicate that they may be the most
                 constructive crossover and mutation points too. We also
                 demonstrate the sensitivity of this work to the precise
                 definition of what is constructive/destructive.",
