His basic argument is illustrated by the following: "If you take differences between two random individuals of the same population, they are about 85 percent of the differences you would find if you take two individuals at random from the whole world." The mammalian genome is constantly reassorting itself and recombining during reproduction.
Although aggregation to patches of locally high prey density has been suggested as a possible stabilizing mechanism (Hassell and May 1973), it is more likely to be destabilizing in a continuously reassorting system such as the Daphnia-alga interaction (Murdoch and Stewart-Oaten 1989, Murdoch et al.
