Studies of these specialists at several central Malayan sites, and museum analysis of their external morphology, provided a basis for examining some ecomorphological parameters of their sympatry. There is a gradient in size from 9 to 430 g, with seven species weighing between 50 and 100 g. Structural differences… CONTINUE READING
