DNA barcodes go underground

GBOL-project ‘Subterranean Fauna’ Alexander M. Weigand (Goethe University Frankfurt) High degrees of endemism, low levels of gene-flow and limited food resources are not only characteristics of oceanic islands but similarly well describe subterranean environments. Cave endemics are frequently reported even from a morphology-only point of view. Considering the likeliness of cave-dwelling taxa adapting in convergent […]


DNA Barcoding of Natural Health Products

Why sometimes reading the label just isn’t enough Lauren Wallace (graduate student of McMaster University) Think that it is alright to take Natural Health Product labels at face value? Think again. In fact, Natural Health Products are frequently mislabelled. Our barcoding study, conducted at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario, Guelph, and guided by Mehrdad Hajibabaei, […]
