Testing DNA Barcode Performance in 1000 Species of European Lepidoptera: Large Geographic Distances Have Small Genetic Impacts
It is concluded that barcode libraries based on regional sampling can often be effective for a much larger area, and nearly 20% of the species shared by Austria and Finland require further work to clarify their status. 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
Genetic Patterns in European Geometrid Moths Revealed by the Barcode Index Number (BIN) System
This study confirms the effectiveness of DNA barcoding as a tool for species identification and illustrates the potential of the BIN system to characterize formal genetic units independently of an existing classification, and suggests the system can be used to efficiently assess the biodiversity of large, poorly known assemblages of organisms.

A simplified technique for producing platelet-rich plasma and platelet concentrate for intraoral bone grafting techniques: a technical note.
A method to produce platelet-rich plasma and platelet concentrate using a double centrifuge technique in combination with the fibrin adhesive Tisseel is described. This technique constitutes theExpand
Species-Level Para- and Polyphyly in DNA Barcode Gene Trees: Strong Operational Bias in European Lepidoptera
It is suggested that species-level non-monophyly in COI gene trees is less common than previously supposed, with many cases reflecting misidentifications, the subjectivity of species delimitation or other operational factors. Expand
DNA barcoding as a screening tool for cryptic diversity: an example from Caryocolum, with description of a new species (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae)
Deep splits with a maximum intraspecific barcode divergence beyond a threshold of 3% are observed in Caryocolum amaurella, indicating possible cryptic diversity and the taxonomy of these taxa has to be re-assessed in the future. Expand
Integrative taxonomy reveals a new species of Callisto (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae) in the Alps
A new gracillariid species from the south-eastern Alps is described that shows differences from its sister species Callisto coffeella in morphology, the barcode region of the cytochrome c oxidase I gene and the nuclear gene histone H3. Expand
