                 This chapter describes methods for investigating
                 emergent phenomena in genetic programming by looking at
                 a population's collective behaviour. It details how
                 these methods can be used to trace genotypic changes
                 across lineages and genealogies. Part of the
                 methodology, we present an algorithm for decomposing
                 arbitrary subtrees from the population to their
                 inherited parts, picking up the changes performed by
                 either crossover or mutation across ancestries. This
                 powerful tool creates new possibilities for future
                 theoretical investigations on evolutionary algorithm
                 behavior concerning building blocks and fitness
                 landscape analysis.",
