hello everyone,

i ran across a really fascinating study about speciation in a group of
south american finches, the capuchino seedeaters. the cool thing is that
these birds have nearly identical genomes, but they look and sound
incredibly different and are considered to be different species. WHY? HOW?
this newly-published study reveals some fundamental secrets to accelerated
evolution and speedy speciation
