Advancing the genomic revolution of species delimitation



Quick facts

Project title: 
Advancing the genomic revolution of species delimitation
ZFMK Project lead: 
Object of research: 
Lepidoptera, species delimitation


During this project we propose to use target enrichment methods for:

1) Species delimitation of entirely or partially sympatric and taxonomically difficult species complexes in the light of genome-wide data
2) Species delimitation under allopatry with no or limited gene flow at present
3) Species delimitation of parapatric populations with hybridization zone and reduced gene flow
4) Species delimitation in presence of asexuality
