Morphological data for Darwin's finches

Share:

Description

Data for nine morphological traits for species of Darwin's finches occurring on the Galapagos Islands.

Note that the underlying morphological dataset has been augmented and improved since version 1.3.1 to include more species and islands. Results are not comparable to version 1.3.0 and below. To duplicate results in the Blonder et al. (2014) paper please install an older version of the package.
