Examines the process of evolutionary "branching" by which new species are produced. This collection of Paterson's writings on speciation and how it occurs suggest that it is not an adaptive process but a passive consequence of the adaptation of intraspecific bonding mechanisms to a new environment. The conceptual basis of his research has come to be called the "Recognition Concept of Species" involving the specific-mate recognition system.
