Hypotheses concerning the evolutionary significance of biodiversity are investigated using a combination of phenetic and genetic analyses of a number of specific taxonomic groups belonging to different kingdoms. In addition to detailed studies of morphology, cytology and anatomy; molecular and genetic characteristics are used to study the nature and function of cryptobiodiversity and the phylogenetic relationships of the various groups of organisms.
