Hidden biodiversity? : exploring the effects of high phenotypic polymorphism on species delineation in a group of Neotropical dragonflies.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


This project is part of the study of the characterization of Colombian biodiversity, seeking to clearly define 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 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 for the ecosystems to which the species belong.
