How gene flow between species influences the evolution of Darwin's finches

May 6, 2020 - General

Despite the traditional view that species do not exchange genes by hybridisation, recent studies show that gene flow between closely related species is more common than previously thought. A team of scientists from Uppsala University and Princeton University now reports how gene flow between two species of Darwin’s finches has affected their beak morphology. The study is published in Nature Ecology and Evolution.
