  abstract =     "We examine the way in which rooted building blocks
                 grow in GP-like systems. We hypothesise that, in
                 addition to the normal notion of co-operative building
                 blocks, there are also competitive building blocks in
                 the population. These competitive building blocks are
                 all of the rooted variety, all share a similar root
                 structure and compete with each other to spread their
                 particular extensions to the common structure
                 throughout the population. We demonstrate that not only
                 do these competitive building blocks exist, but that
                 they work in tandem with non-rooted co-operative
                 building blocks.",
