The dry forest is currently the most threatened of the Caledonian biomes. It is truly the heart of the Caledonian ecosystems, which are known world wide for their exceptional biodiversity. The terms “dry forest” or “sclerophyllous forest” are given to forest formations that develop in a dry climate (less than 1100mm of rain per year). In comparison, the rest of the island of Grande Terre receives about 2500mm of rain per year. The Caledonian dry forests are found on the west end of New Caledonia and extend to up to 300 meters à 400m above the coast. They are often found on sedimentary rock, and occasionally on basaltic rock. For about six months each year, they are subject to a dry season with drying trade winds. ...

The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) is an international initiative devoted to developing DNA barcoding as a global standard in taxonomy. CBOL has more than 130 Member Organizations from 40 countries. DNA Barcoding is a technique that uses a short gene sequence from a standardized region of the genome as a diagnostic “biomarker” for species. Different species have different DNA barcodes, making it possible to use barcodes to: (1) identify specimens, (2) discover possible new species, and (3) to make taxonomy more effective for science and society. ...
