DNA Barcoding - Conceptual Diagrams of Bioassessment Research

First barcoding conceptual diagram

Figure 1. Conceptual model of traditional bioassessment programs. Problems related to traditional morphological taxonomic identification are marked in red.

Second barcoding conceptual diagram

Figure 2. Conceptual model of the future of bioassessment and other community-level environmental analyses. Much of this work is still hypothetical, although the technology exists to begin developing this framework. Likely benefits of using genomic community data are in blue. The darkly shaded boxes denote the areas where our current efforts are focused.
