The biodiversity of soil communities remains very poorly known and understood. Soil biological sciences are strongly affected by the taxonomic crisis, and most groups of animals in that biota suffer from a strong taxonomic impediment. The objective of this work was to investigate how DNA barcoding – a novel method using a microgenomic tag for species identifi cation and discrimination – permits better evaluation of the taxonomy of soil biota. A total of 1,152 barcode sequences were analyzed for… CONTINUE READING
