Capuchino Seedeater Diversity

Final plate showing diversity among South American Capuchino Seedeater species to accompany paper by Dr. Leo Campagna published in Plos One this month. The recent Capuchino Seedeater biological radiation from the genus Sporophila, is a highly diversified group that evolved during the Pleistocene in Neotropical grasslands. It was really fun painting the different color combinations.
