    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, California 92182 4614, USA
    Evolution 56:1240-52. 2002
    ..Recent studies have shown that adaptive evolution in Darwin's finches occurred relatively quickly. Our data show that among the relatives of Darwin's finches, the evolution of bill diversity was also rapid and extensive...

    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA 92182 4614, USA
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 32:838-54. 2004
    ..The time frame of Tangara speciation corresponds more closely to a period of continued uplift in the Andes during the late Miocene and Pliocene...
