DNA barcode-based delineation of putative species: efficient start for taxonomic workflows
TLDR
This study tested the congruence of OTUs resulting from the application of three analytical methods to sequence data for Australian hypertrophine moths, revealing 124 OTUs of Hypertrophinae, a more than twofold increase from the currently recognized 51 species. Expand
Morphology reinforces proposed molecular phylogenetic affinities: a revised classification for Gelechioidea (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The interrelationships within the superfamily Gelechioidea are examined using the densest taxon sampling to date, combined with the most extensive ever morphological and molecular character data, and a revision of the family classification is proposed. Expand
Delineating Species with DNA Barcodes: A Case of Taxon Dependent Method Performance in Moths
TLDR
Despite the strong performance of analyses based on DNA barcodes, species delineated using single-locus mtDNA data are best viewed as OTUs that require validation by subsequent integrative taxonomic work. Expand
Biodiversity inventories in high gear: DNA barcoding facilitates a rapid biotic survey of a temperate nature reserve
TLDR
This model of rapid generation and dissemination of essential biodiversity data could be followed to conduct regional assessments of biodiversity status and change, and potentially be employed for evaluating progress towards the Aichi Targets of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020. Expand
One species in eight: DNA barcodes from type specimens resolve a taxonomic quagmire
TLDR
The results suggest that sequences as short as 56 bp can often provide valuable taxonomic information and support significant taxonomic oversplitting of species in the Elachista dispunctella complex. Expand
Food regulates reproduction differently in different habitats: experimental evidence in the Goshawk.
TLDR
It is shown that treatment effects on goshawk reproductive performance are habitat dependent, and the importance of acknowledging the effect that small-scale variation in habitat quality and availability of natural food may have on the results of food supplementation experiments is highlighted. Expand
TAXON DELINEATION IN GELECHIOID MOTHS: FROM PHYLOGENETICS TO DNA BARCODING
TLDR
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Central American region. Expand
