Abstract: Precise and accurate quantification of biological diversity is crucial for many fields of biological research and for understanding ecosystem services, biological interactions, biogeography and designing management strategies for conservation. The majority of current taxonomic knowledge is concentrated on a few groups of macro-organisms, mostly vertebrates and flowering plants, which represent only c. 0.7% and 3%, respectively, of the ~11 million estimated species of eukaryotes. The overwhelming... more
