Hidden biodiversity? Exploring the effects of a high phenotypic polymorphism on the delimitation of species in a group of neotropical dragonflies.

Project: Research project

Description

This project is framed in the study of the characterization of Colombian biodiversity, seeking to clearly delimit the species of a genus of bioindicator odonates using a combination of state-of-the-art methods in genetics, genomics and morphology. The establishment and knowledge of the species is a question of vital importance in Basic Biological Sciences, not only to understand the evolutionary mechanisms involved in the generation of biological diversity, but also to establish conservation policies of the ecosystems to which the species belongs.
