DNA-Barcoding of True Bugs (Heteroptera) of Vorarlberg
The high ecological diversity makes True Bugs (Insecta: Heteroptera) ideal descriptors and indicators in conservation biology. More than 900 species are recorded for Austria. At present DNA-Barcoding is not yet often used in Heteroptera. Aim of this study is the generation of DNA-barcodes from as many True Bugs of Vorarlberg as possible. In future this data shall be compared to populations from eastern and southern Europe.
The Project is funded by the inatura Erlebnis Naturschau GmbH, Dornbirn.
