The predator, which is an eagle, the rats hide in mud; The eagle is able to see the white rats and eats them, that is an advantage to brown rats. Disruptive selection means that natural selection is in favor of the average general individual in a group of organisms. An example of disruptive selection can be where there are white and black rabbits. Their offspring are grey, in the area where they live there are white and black rocks which they use to hide from their predators, this only benefits white and black rabbits. However, grey rabbits will have a greater chance to get eaten.
However, they are more dependent socially upon their pack than other types of wolves. They seem to thrive on the social interactions that take place within a pack.

Overall, her point of view was to inform the readers that it is major to care for indifferent creatures even if you loathe them.

Jones in her article The Southern Family Farm as Endangered Species: Possibilities for survival in Barbara Kingsolver’s “Prodigal Summer” published in the Southern Literary Journal (2006) has deeply analyzed points out “Barbara Kingsolver’s larger point is as much ecological as it is agricultural. She uses principles of ecology to question and to illuminate human behavior, and not just the Widener’s family actions but Lusa’s own.” And she adds “Throughout Prodigal Summer Kingsolver is at pains to point out that some things in life can be known from experience, without the abstract knowledge of scientific
