      Malthus wrote about factors that would limit the growth of a population. Darwin realized that individual organisms must therefore compete for access resources, and that small variant that gave an individual an advantage would lead to its success. If the variation were successful, then the individual would survive and create these successful. In Darwin’s case, it was the influence of Thomas Robert Malthus, who was a late eighteenth century economist, and ironically, a clergyman in the Church of England. Though Darwin was influenced by many different writers and philosophers of the time, one of his main influences was Thomas Malthus.

        He was in favor of overpopulation. Darwin’s idea about natural selection come from reading Malthus’ book "Essay on the Principle of Population" (). Remarkably, Wallace was also led to the concept of natural selection by the same book. In it, M. The book An Essay on the Principle of Population was first published anonymously in , but the author was soon identified as Thomas Robert book warned of future difficulties, on an interpretation of the population increasing at a geometrical ratio (so as to double every 25 years) while an increase in food production was limited to an arithmetic ratio, which would leave a Author: Thomas Robert Malthus.

        Malthus wrote about the struggle for survival and its relationship to the fact that the food supply is limited, but animals, if permitted by other circumstances, will continue to breed until there are too many for the available food, at which time they will compete for scarce resources. Darwin and Malthus concluded that If all offspring of almost any species survived for several generations, they would overrun the world. Asked in Biology, Charles Darwin, Evolution.
