Another example of an adaptive radiation would be an [[endemic]] species of the [[Hawaiian Islands]]. The [[Hawaiian honeycreeper]]s are a large, highly diverse species which have been part of a vast adaptive radiation, that began as the Hawaiian Islands started to form. The honeycreeper species was shaped by island formation and natural selection. The mechanism by which this adaptive radiation occurred can be described as allopatric speciation via the peripheral isolate model. Each time a new island formed, a dispersal event would occur which would result in new community structures on each island. New selection pressures forced the adaptive radiation of the Hawaiian honeycreepers, as they needed to exploit new resources from the different environments of each island.<ref>{{cite journal|last1=Schluter|first1=Dolph|title=Ecological causes of adaptive radiation|journal=Am Nat|date=1996|volume=148|pages=S40-S64|doi=10.1086/285901}}</ref> It has been determined that many of the similar morphologies and behaviors of the Hawaiian Honeycreepers, located on distant islands, are due to convergence of analogous traits caused by similar environments.<ref>{{cite journal|last1=Reding|first1=DM|last2=Foster|first2=JT|last3=James|first3=HF|last4=Pratt|first4=HD|last5=Fleisher|first5=RC|title=Convergent evolution of 'creepers' in the Hawaiian honeycreeper radiation|journal=Biol Lett|date=2009|volume=5|pages=221–224|doi=10.1098/rsbl.2008.0589}}</ref>
