Biologists have a good understanding of the evolutionary processes required to generate divergence between populations, yet the relative importance of different processes is debated. Silvereyes are excellent island colonisers, with numerous forms at varying stages of divergence across the south Pacific region. These forms can be considered proxies for early stages of the speciation continuum. Using phenotypic and genomic data, I examine how divergence proceeds and how processes of selection, drift and gene flow contribute to their divergence.
