A universal DNA mini-barcode for biodiversity analysis
A novel approach based on a much shorter barcode sequence is established and demonstrated its effectiveness in archival specimens, which will significantly broaden the application of DNA barcoding in biodiversity studies. Expand
DNA barcodes for 1/1000 of the animal kingdom
It is confirmed that a highly effective system for the identification of Lepidoptera in this region can be built with few records per species because of the limited intra-specific variation, and an effective DNA-based identification system can be developed with modest effort. Expand
Order Lepidoptera Linnaeus, 1758. In : Zhang, Z.-Q. (Ed.) Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate. Expand
Integration of DNA barcoding into an ongoing inventory of complex tropical biodiversity
Adding DNA barcoding to the inventory of the caterpillars, their food plants and parasitoids in northwestern Costa Rica has substantially improved the quality and depth of the inventory, and greatly multiplied the number of situations requiring further taxonomic work for resolution. Expand
A Molecular Phylogeny for Yponomeutoidea (Insecta, Lepidoptera, Ditrysia) and Its Implications for Classification, Biogeography and the Evolution of Host Plant Use
The first robust molecular phylogeny for Yponomeutoidea is provided, together with a revised classification and new insights into their life history evolution and biogeography. Expand
Allopatry as a Gordian Knot for Taxonomists: Patterns of DNA Barcode Divergence in Arctic-Alpine Lepidoptera
DNA barcodes have great potential to both increase taxonomic resolution and to make decisions concerning the taxonomic status of allopatric populations more objective. Expand
In the dark in a large urban park: DNA barcodes illuminate cryptic and introduced moth species
The magnitude of assistance that barcoding presents for faunal inventories, from reducing specialist time to facilitating the detection of native and exotic species at low density, is described. Expand
DNA-based identification of introduced ermine moth species in North America (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae).
Three sibling species of European small ermine moths of the Yponomeuta padella complex have been collected in North America to allow identification of fresh as well as dried specimens without host data, and the sequence for a 2.3-kb region of mtDNA that includes the cytochrome oxidase I and II and transfer RNA (tRNA) leucine genes is reported.

DNA barcoding data obtained for five of the six species revealed interspecific differences averaging 8.1%, whereas intraspecific variation was ≤ 0.16%, and provided unequivocal species separation matching morphology-based identifications. Expand
