TEDxAdelaide – DNA Barcoding for Biodiversity

Biodiversity and ecosystems provide us with clean air, water, and access to food.

However we don’t really know much about the basic building blocks of biodiversity.

How many species are there on earth? 10 million? What does this mean for humans? Over 250 years we’ve probably found and named approximately 1 million species, approx 10% of the biodiversity on earth.

At the same time the rate of intinction is increasing.

We’re going to need some help.
