My Year of Darwin 11/23/2014 More perfect

 Charles Darwin

"Natural selection tend only to make each organic being as perfect as, or slightly more perfect than, the other inhabitants of the same country with which it has to struggle for existence." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

Darwin's perfection could be taken as adaptation to local conditions. This passage is followed by examples of usurpation of local organisms by invasive species that are better able to exploit local conditions.
