Abstract:
The Operational Directorate Taxonomy and Phylogeny is part of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) which was founded in 1846 under its former name, the ‘Koninklijk Natuurhistorisch Museum van België’ (Royal Belgian Natural History Museum). This Directorate conducts research on animal biodiversity and evolution, and more specifically, speciation, adaptation, biotic interactions and integrative taxonomy. Particular attention is paid to the identification of new taxa (primarily via DNA barcoding), the impact of invasive species, the importance of chemical communication in insects, the effects of habitat disruption, the reconstruction of phylogenetic relations and the creationism versus evolution debate.

A limited number of marine taxa are studied in this group. Echinoderms (Echinodermata) (in conjunction with the scientific service “Heritage”), crustaceans (Crustacea), molluscs (Mollusca), annelids (partim: Oligochaeta) and sponges (Porifera). The Directorate performs field work in various parts of the world. Especially the work in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean has a marine focus. The research group is for example involved in SCAR-MarBIN ‘the Antarctic Marine Biodiversity Information Network’.
