The interactions and social deviations caused by the confined habitats.
Also, now I can’t stop seeing humans as rats...

I would love for these experiments to be repated using chimps or monkeys.
Saw an article recently about an island that houses rhesus monkeys used by the cdc or similiar government institution to monitor the spread of diseases.

Would be great if we could repeat these experiments with them instead of rats (more complex social structure).

Cool studies, but there's a problem with your analysis. Science from the 19th century doesn't hold up today. Scientists have moved onto better and more evidenced theories. Also, there is a reason why scientists don't study overpopulation tendencies anymore. It's mostly because human overpopulation is a myth. Most of the 1st world has stable or even declining birth rates. It's the 3rd world where birth rates are high, but infant mortality and the average age is also much lower in those countries due to inadequate health care. It has also been discovered that as 3rd world countries bridge the gap to 1st world countries then the birth rate also drops accordingly.

Overpopulation is just one of those fear trigger words that media or tptb use to keep you hating your peers instead of the people that matter.
