3D scans reveal flexible skull patterns are key to island bird diversity
A study of the super-diverse bird groups, which include Darwin's finches, has found that modular skull parts helped them adapt to different roles. Adaptive radiation is the rapid evolution of many diverse species from a single ancestor. Typically this occurs in the colonization of island habitats, as a group of birds diversifies to exploit different ecological niches – the lifestyles, or roles, available within an ecosystem.
