    Ecological Outbreak Dynamics and the Cusp Catastrophe.Michael R. Rose & Rudolf Harmsen - 1981 - Acta Biotheoretica 30 (4):229-253.
    Many ecological processes exhibit trajectories which can be suitably represented by stable equilibria or smooth limit cycles. However, a third kind of ecological process involves intermittent, abrupt, and drastic changes in densities, here termed outbreak dynamics, which require different modelling frameworks. One such framework, the cusp catastrophe, is used here in a modelling study of a particular outbreak insect, the forest tent caterpillar. This model is then generalized to cover a set of related ecological systems. The particular form of the (...)

    Adaptive and Nonadaptive Explanations of Sociopathy.Chris Moore & Michael R. Rose - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):566-567.
    We doubt that primary sociopathy is adaptive, for three reasons: First, its prevalence is too low to require an adaptive explanation. Second, a common sequela of damage to the orbito-frontal lobes is Any pattern of behavior that can be produced by brain damage is unlikely to be adaptive. Third, we argue that most human social behavior is not under tight genetic control, but is produced by open-ended calculation of fitness-contingencies.
