comment Is local equilibrium a reasonable assumption for evolutionary processes?
In his book "Selection: the mechanism of evolution" he talks extensively on the dynamics of selection : i.e. how selection is changing over time, in different environments, etc. In particular I am recall some claims that evolution cannot be modelled as a markov-process because the state space is too large and impossible to characterize. My memory of this is quite vague, so I could be remembering a different author, and I can't find the relevant passage in this book right now.

Yup. That's the one. You'd think I could look six inches above my screen to the binding of a book to check the spelling of his name, wouldn't you?
