John Wilkins, who apparently didn’t learn the first time, has repeated his ill-informed claim that “Barcoding syphons off money and resources from real systematics.” I have said it before: DNA barcoding has brought in money from sources that never supported systematics (a prime example being Genome Canada). I co-authored some of these grants. I have been in the field with some of the taxonomists who are supported by them. I am around a five minute walk from the world’s major barcoding facility, which hosts systematist postdocs and collaborators and processes material from a large network of taxonomists. Wilkins, on the other hand, gets all his information from critics of barcoding.
