First let me say that i am new to this mathematica and programming
business. I am programming a random speciation. I have a list, lyst,
that is a certain range. I want to replace, at random, one part of lyst
with something that is not in the original list, speciation. When I
table this, it puts the speciation outside the list and inside the
list. Can anyone help me? here's the line that seems to be giving me

lyst[[Random[Integer, {1, Length[lyst]}]]] = Random[Integer,
{Length[lyst]+ 1,Length[lyst] + 100}]
