Publications
The following is a non-exhaustive list of publications (ordered chronologically by year and alphabetically) relevant for participants to the iBOL Lepidoptera DNA Barcoding campaign as well as for users/visitors of this website. This list is divided in several categories:
Upcoming publications by participants to the campaign will be added to this list on a regular basis. We remind to all contributors/authors that they should acknowledge the funding source which permitted generation of DNA barcodes included in their works.
