Sequence-based species delimitation for the DNA taxonomy of undescribed insects.
Cataloging the very large number of undescribed species of insects could be greatly accelerated by automated DNA based approaches, but procedures for large-scale species discovery from sequence dataExpand

Delimiting Species Using Single-Locus Data and the Generalized Mixed Yule Coalescent Approach: A Revised Method and Evaluation on Simulated Data Sets
DNA barcoding-type studies assemble single-locus data from large samples of individuals and species, and have provided new kinds of data for evolutionary surveys of diversity. An important goal ofExpand

Accelerated species inventory on Madagascar using coalescent-based models of species delineation.
High-throughput DNA sequencing has the potential to accelerate species discovery if it is able to recognize evolutionary entities from sequence data that are comparable to species. The general mixedExpand

A Comprehensive Phylogeny of Beetles Reveals the Evolutionary Origins of a Superradiation
Beetles represent almost one-fourth of all described species, and knowledge about their relationships and evolution adds to our understanding of biodiversity. We performed a comprehensiveExpand

DNA barcoding the floras of biodiversity hotspots
DNA barcoding is a technique in which species identification is performed by using DNA sequences from a small fragment of the genome, with the aim of contributing to a wide range of ecological andExpand

Darwin's abominable mystery: Insights from a supertree of the angiosperms
Angiosperms are among the major terrestrial radiations of life and a model group for studying patterns and processes of diversification. As a tool for future comparative studies, we compiled aExpand

Detecting the Geographical Pattern of Speciation from Species‐Level Phylogenies
We introduce a general approach for investigating the role of geography in speciation, based on analyzing the geography of sister clades across all nodes in a species‐level phylogeny. We examine theExpand

The Effect of Geographical Scale of Sampling on DNA Barcoding
Abstract Eight years after DNA barcoding was formally proposed on a large scale, CO1 sequences are rapidly accumulating from around the world. While studies to date have mostly targeted local orExpand

Independently Evolving Species in Asexual Bdelloid Rotifers
Asexuals are an important test case for theories of why species exist. If asexual clades displayed the same pattern of discrete variation as sexual clades, this would challenge the traditional viewExpand
