  abstract =     "A new evolutionary search algorithm, called BGP
                 (Building-block approach to Genetic Programming), to be
                 used for classification tasks in data mining, is
                 introduced. It is different from existing evolutionary
                 techniques in that it does not use indirect
                 representations of a solution, such as bit strings or
                 grammars. The algorithm uses decision trees of various
                 sizes as individuals in the populations and operators,
                 e.g. crossover, are performed directly on the trees.
                 When compared to the C4.5 and CN2 induction algorithms
                 on a benchmark set of problems, BGP shows very good
