Morphological variation among different island populations is a familiar attribute of many species of Darwin's finches. Lack (1947) provided the first detailed arguments for the adaptive significance of morphological variation in this group. He stressed two aspects: first, that several morphological features are related to feeding, and second, that morphological differences between populations may be associated with inter-island differences in the type and number of potentially competing… CONTINUE READING
