The process of evolution of different species from a given geographical area and radiating to another area of geography is called adaptive radiation.

Darwin's finches are examples of adaptive radiation.

Another example is Australian marsupials because they are different from each other evolved from an ancestral stock, but all present same place.

So, Darwin's finches and Australian marsupials are two examples of adaptive radiation.
