Museum bird DNA ‘ready for use’ in Naturalis Biodiversity Center

An Iranian ornithologist used a «ready for use» museum collection to DNA barcode 147 bird species from The Netherlands. While fast and accurate identifications could be confirmed for most species, gulls and skuas showed fuzzy boundaries and, in contrast, Lesser Whitethroats diversified in more than one species. The study was published in the open access journal ZooKeys.
