Species-rich, poorly-understood taxa

Interdisciplinary research into species-rich, poorly-understood taxa

This project focuses on the ‘araphid’ diatoms - numbering around 4-5,000 known species, with many more still to be described. 

Although a non-monophyletic group, it is significant because it contains species that relate to the largest two clades.
