Title: Exposing diversity: using DNA barcoding to identify more fish species in North America’s fresh water ecosystems
Author: April, J.; Mayden, R.L.; Hanner, R.H.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: DNA barcoding is a technique that can distinguish between known species and help flag the existence of new ones. Using the DNA barcoding technique, researchers found about 28% more lineage diversity in fresh water fishes than had been previously identified using traditional approaches. This technique can be used to discover the diversity on a genetic level, which is hidden to the human eye.
