However, this is not an excuse to ignore the numerous injustices perpetrated against the Indigenous Aboriginal population by the mainly British colonists and subsequent Australians since initial colonisation. I do not support racism in any form. Graph 1 - Based on figures taken from Also worth noting is that, although the national flag of the rabbits is clearly intended to emulate the British flag, many of the immigrant rabbits in reality are actually from continental Europe, the Middle East, India, China, and other parts of Asia.
Malthusian Selection is the Exponentialist hypothesis that environmental and human cultural factors can cause one population to be able to sustain a Malthusian Parameter population growth rate at a higher rate for longer than another population, and thus out-compete it.

The Rabbits tells a rich and haunting story about the arrival of the rabbits Marsden, The Exponentialist view is this traditional evolutionary view which includes Natural Selection fails to explain why the Indigenous population never rose to the same numbers as the non-Indigenous population, before or since colonisation.
