Integrative species delimitation: incorporating multiple types of data

Barrett, Craig [1].

Integrative species delimitation: Incorporating multiple forms of data.

Despite recent advances in DNA sequencing technologies and coalescent theory, there exists a strongly professed need for species delimitation studies to become more pluralistic, incorporating multiple forms of data. These may include information in the form of: morphological/anatomical distinctness, molecular divergence,behavioral variation, ecological niche separation, reproductive isolation, and geographic barriers. There are several challenges associated with integrating these types of data. Which data, if any, should receive preferential weighting? Do all data types need to corroborate one another? How do species concepts/delimitation criteria fit into the picture when considering multiple forms of data? This colloquium was organized to explore some of the frameworks and examples under which different data types can be integrated.
