DNA barcoding reveals diversity of Hymenoptera and the dominance of parasitoids in a sub-arctic environment

Abstract

Insect diversity typically declines with increasing latitude, but previous studies have shown conflicting latitude-richness gradients for some hymenopteran parasitoids. However, historical estimates of insect diversity and species richness can be difficult to confirm or compare, because they may be based upon dissimilar methods. As a proxy for species… (More)
