Hi Cindy, this is a good question. We think that islands may have fewer resources available for these species and the island species evolve these morphologies to specialize in utilization of these resources. For example, there is a species on the island of Jamaica that lives between the narrow crevices of the leaves of bromeliad plants and it also has an extremely long and narrow snout, it may be adapted to capturing prey in these microhabitats. The results from this project will definitely motivate many more avenues of research to answer these questions!
