Hi Matthew
Thank you for adding a comment to my profile. DNA barcoding is not a new concept for us for the last five years we are involved in this under the Guidence of Dr Wazir Singh lakra,still a lot has to be done. Hope i will be able to make significant contribution to the organisation. I am a researcher . I am basically into conservation of biodiversity particulary endandered and threatened species,mostly fishes and aquatic organism. hope i would beable to get connected to such individuals to promote conservation of species, and do my best in all possible way...

Thanks Mathew. I joined Plants group being my speciality

thank you for the detailed clarification. i think i can freeze store tissue sample for the large mammals.

Can you describe to me what is a voucher specimen? Can a picture be a valid voucher? this is because i work with large mammals and i am wondering how to acquire their voucher specimens.

thank you Matt for the welcome message.

i am still learning my way through this system and hope to get well connected with the teams and groups.

Hello sir,
Thankyou for adding me in this community.DNA barcoding in India is one of the hot topics going on.This has opened many avenues for research in conservation genetics.Hope you will able to connect me to individuals working in Beetles through the world.

Could someone close to those in charge of FISHBOL explain why they tend to ignore mails sent to their advertised addresses? I have sent tens of several mails to Drs. Swartz, Mwale and many others that still remain unreplied a month after.
Could someone be kind enough to let them know these, please!

Wow, that's a great shot! If you get tired of tracking down abstracts you should consider trying your hand at photography.
