Boom and Bust May Be the Norm in Nature, Study Suggests

Unperturbed environments can see wild swings.

By CAROL KAESUK YOON

From sudden plagues of locusts to mysterious declines in sought-after creatures like the Dungeness crab, the booms and busts of nature have puzzled researchers. A new study suggests that scientists may sometimes have difficulty finding an environmental cause for these fluctuations simply because there is not one.

In the study published last month in the journal Science, researchers at the University of California at Davis found evidence that many animals, even when they are unperturbed by unusual weather or any other alterations in their environment, can undergo wildly unpredictable changes in their numbers.

Using a very simple computer model inspired by the life cycle of the Dungeness crab, the researchers found that instability and change are the rule for these animals rather than the exception, that their population numbers whirl along through time, never settling down, even after tens of thousands of generations. The results, they say, suggest that nature is more unpredictable and unstable--and difficult to study--than researchers had guessed.
