Abstract Simple models were developed empirically to account for possible effects of patchy annual predation upon populations of benthic species. Long‐term population cycles were generated and, provided there was limited interaction among three prey species, three different cycles were obtained. With exponential or power increments in populations, the prey showed spatial aggregations, but these were less marked than those observed in nature. The failure of the models to explain certain other natural phenomena is commented upon. Copyright
