Abstract : Self-reproducing systems (SRS) represent ensemble of objects (or individuals) which can produce other objects similar to themselves. If they compete with each other for resources, then they can form aggregates (or clusters) instead of a uniform distribution. New aggregates can split from the previous ones. In terms of biological populations, the aggregates correspond to biological species, and emergence of new aggregates to the process of speciation. Other examples of SRS will also be discussed.
