Ants in Australia's Monsoonal Tropics: CO1 Barcoding Reveals Extensive Unrecognised Diversity

Oberprieler, Stefanie; Andersen, Alan N.; Moritz, Craig


The Australian monsoonal tropics (AMT) is a significant biodiversity hotspot, and recent genetic studies of several vertebrate groups have revealed its level of diversity is far higher than previously thought. However, the extent to which this applies to the AMT's insect fauna, which represents most AMT faunal species, remains unknown. Here we examine the extent of unrecognised diversity in the AMT's ecologically dominant insect group, ants. We used CO1 barcoding in combination with...[Show more]
