Poster for the 2011 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing species composition of Diptera (flies) in the Robalo River on Navarino Island, Chile.
Abstract: The Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve in Southern Chile is considered to be one of the last remaining wilderness areas in the world. While the vertebrates of the area have been described in detail, little is currently known about the intervertebrates, in particular the aquatic insects, which live there. Much of the area is still in pristine condition, but is under threats from invasive species and tourism. As part of an ongoing project, specimens of the order Diptera (flies) will be selected from the three years worth of samples collected from the Robalo River on Navarino Island, Chile. These specimens will be identified to the species level and give future research in the area a base level of diversity to compare against.
