An eminent American expert on marine biodiversity has urged the Indian scientists to foster genetic studies for classifying marine species, saying most of such species were still unexplored in the Indian region. "The biodiversity in the Indian region is yet to be studied and classified, compared to the Atlantic and Pacific regions where Census of Marine Life being conducted by scientists," Dr Gustav Paulay, Curator of Florida Museum of National History, University of Florida, said. Delivering a lecture on 'Reef Biodiversity: the Inside Story' at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) Kochi on Thursday, he advised Indian scientists to lay emphasis on understanding the characteristics of undescribed marine species in the Indian Ocean by intensifying research on taxonomy by using molecular tools like DNA or meta barcoding.
