Campbell, A.M., Lawrence, A.J., Hudspath, C.B., & Gruwell, M.E. 2014 Molecular Identification of Diaspididae and Elucidation of Non-Native Species Using the Genes 28s and 16s. Insects 5: 528-538


  • DNA
  • molecular data
  • Notes: We have attempted to elucidate the effectiveness of molecular identification techniques using ribosomal 28s and endosymbiotic 16s rRNA. Sequence data was obtained from many field-collected insects to test the feasibility of identification techniques. A protocol for quick species determination based on sequence data is provided.
