Species are conceived to change little during most of their history, but events of rapid speciation occasionally punctuate this stability, resulting in concentrated periods of change (Eldredge and Gould, 1972). The punctuational model explains the rapid speciation as a result of the rapid appearance of new attributes in emergent populations (Stanley, 1979). By comparison, organizational conceptions of the punctuational hypothesis typically entail the progression of single organizations (Miller and Friesen, 1980a, 1980b; Tushman and Romanelli, 1985) or work groups (Gersick, 1988, 1989) through a pattern of alternating inertial and revolutionary periods of change.
From this view, elaborating the specification of organizational evolution requires an examination of how interactive processes of competition and mutualism studied in organizational ecology research are related to historical processes of information conservation and transmission. Given the extent to which our past achievements in organizational evolution are based on analogical thinking, we think attempts to specify processes of interaction and replication as they pertain to organizational evolution will profit from current concepts and models from evolutionary biology and sociocultural evolution.
Freeman and Lomi and Zucker and Kreft go one step further and examine the interaction of genealogical and ecological processes. They do this by examining the ecological consequences of institutional processes that create the conditions for the production and persistence of organizational forms. In the community evolution section (part V), the three chapters by Barnett, Brittain, and Baum and Singh present ecological studies of the mutual interactions among populations and between populations and their environments within organizational communities.
