Kimberleys biodiversity project

Phoenix has recently been engaged to support a large-scale biodiversity project conducted in the Kimberly region of Western Australia by providing taxonomic services to identify spiders.

 

This project has been highly publicised and endeavours to associate large scale ‘ecogenomics’, a new tool for a rapid assessment for biodiversity from mixed-arthropod samples, with traditional morphological identifications.
