    Galapagos finch, distinctive group of birds whose radiation into several ecological niches in the competition-free isolation of the Galapagos Islands and on Cocos Island gave the English naturalist Charles Darwin evidence for his thesis that “species are not immutable.” The three genera (Geospiza. The term "Darwin's finches" was first applied by Percy Lowe in , and popularised in by David Lack in his book Darwin's Finches. [7] [8] Lack based his analysis on the large collection of museum specimens collected by the –06 Galápagos expedition of the California Academy of Sciences, to whom Lack dedicated his book.

A few years ago the depth and thickness of beaks of various species of Darwin's finches, the birds forever linked in the textbooks to adaptive radiation by natural selection, were found to.

These results help to explain deep and wide beak morphologies among the seed-eating ground finches when compared with similarly sized species of Darwin's finches pursuing dissimilar diets, such as the cactus finches, and correlation of such morphology with the increased bite force reported earlier (Herrel et al.

Darwin's finches show most extreme differences in beak size and shape. The Warbler finch (a) has the smallest, the Large ground finch (b) the largest beak. Genetic insight on beak development reveals the developmental modules underlying morphological change.

Previous work by Abzhanov and colleagues [] has investigated the developmental genetics of beak variation among Darwin's anatomical components, the prenasal cartilage (pnc) and premaxillary bone (pmx), determine adult beak morphology.

Darwin’s finches comprise a group of passerine birds first collected by Charles Darwin during his visit to the Galápagos Archipelago. The group, a textbook example of adaptive radiation (the diversification of a founding population into an array of species differentially adapted to diverse environmental niches), encompasses 14 currently recognized species, of which 13 live on the Galápagos.

Multiple speciation in a short space of time, driven by adaptation to particular niches. E.g. Darwin's finches (Galapagos islands) Morphological changes in body size and in particular beak size/characteristics.

The finches in the above video were collected from the Galápagos Islands in by Charles Darwin and his colleagues during the second voyage of HMS Beagle ().

The different finch species on the islands are closely related to each other, but show wide variations in. Galapagos Islands. Charles Darwin and the rest of the HMS Beagle crew spent only five weeks in the Galapagos Islands, but the research performed there and the species Darwin brought back to England were instrumental in the formation of a core part of the original theory of evolution and Darwin's ideas on natural selection which he published in his first book.

These adaptations would be the beak, the behavioral adaptation of a tool using finch, and lastly, the warbler finches feather color. The first adaptation, its beak, mostly evolved recently, in the year of In the Galapagos, that year there was a very strong drought that made some of the vegetation dried out, taking seeds, fruits, and other.

Introduction. Food limitation, both in abundance and in accessibility, strongly influences the evolution of morphological and behavioral traits (WiensMartin and Karr ).Well-known examples of morphological adaptation to different food types in birds are the varied forms of the beaks of Darwin's ground finches (BowmanSchluter and GrantGrant ).

On the Galapagos Islands there are 22 endemic species of terrestrial birds, of which the finches are the most numerous (at least 13 species) (Petren et al.,Weidenfeld, ).

Most finch species are omnivorous, eating insects in different proportions depending on the season and their availability (Bowman,Grant, ). Given the difference in ecology and the apparent behavioural and morphological adaptations in the West, we might expect that immigrant sea lions from the central area would have problems to compete successfully with resident animals.

Thus, once ecological differentiation has been initiated, this factor would stabilize any genetic divergence.
