The uniquely Australian nature of these particular radiations is further evidenced
by the larval food plants most commonly associated with these groups of
butterflies. The trapezitine genus Trapezites feeds on the xanthorrhoeacian
genus Lomandra; the ogyrine genus Ogyris on loranthaceous mistletoes, and the
zesiine genera Jalmenus and Pseudalmenus on species of Acacia. The analysis
could be extended: the fact is that those taxa which have apparently radiated
successfully in ...

Consider now how the Australian Public Service interacts with the nation's
parliamentary system. The Australian system of government is often referred to as
the 'Westminster system.' The APS is not a pure Westminster system; nor is it, as
is sometimes claimed, a 'Washminster' hybrid. It is already uniquely Australian –I
sometimes refer to it as the 'Ausminster' system. The uniquely Australian features
of Australian government administration which have evolved over time derive

Later papers bring these two themes together in tracing over time the varying
patterns and attitudes towards sports and national images that have always
characterized Australian society. The jostling between social groups over images
has a lot to do with Carroll's 'good-natured' booing in the Mexican wave at the
MCG. Australia does seem unusual in the popularity of a particular brand of
sports humour. The Australian Dictionary of Biography is surely unique in
including an entry for ...

Probably no other product is seen as more specifically Australian, or more
unproblematically 'possessed' by the nation whose identity it is seen as
expressing. Yet White's analysis soon reveals a vast complex of social and
ideological forces at work behind this most innocent of consumables, and soon
underlines once again, the folly of conceiving any national culture (popular or
elite) in unitary terms. Historical research reveals Vegemite as far from a '
uniquely' Australian element, ...

In histories of Australian silent film, most of the attention given to humour has
centred on films that seek to represent uniquely Australian subject matter. Such
examples as Raymond Longford's The Sentimental Bloke (1919) and On Our
Selection (1920) are undoubtedly important comedic and romantic film narratives
about urban and rural Australian life. Yet these films have tended to receive more
attention for their Australian subject matter and literary origins (in works by C J

The boomerang is uniquely Australian, while the diagonal white stripe gives a "
historical linkage" to the diagonals of the Union Jack. The Southern Cross is
retained in its present form to provide continuity. The Commonwealth Star has "
pride of place" in the canton and represents our sovereignty, our democracy, and
our common goals of unity, purpose and peaceful prosperity. (See colour plate
no 61.) Conclusions It can be seen from the above designs that it is quite
possible to take ...
