DNA Barcodes for Marine Biodiversity : Moving Fast Forward ?

  title={DNA Barcodes for Marine Biodiversity : Moving Fast Forward ?},
  author={Adriana E. Radulovici and Philippe Archambault and France Dufresne},
‘Biodiversity’ means the variety of life and it can be studied at different levels (genetic, species, ecosystem) and scales (spatial and temporal). Last decades showed that marine biodiversity has been severely underestimated at all levels. In order to investigate diversity patterns and underlying processes, there is a need to know what species live in the marine environment. An emerging tool for species identification, DNA barcoding can reliably assign unknown specimens to known species, also… CONTINUE READING
