Our paper on spiders provides an early demonstration of the power of DNA barcoding; we believe that its conclusions will prove scalable to all eukaryotes. We further anticipate that the "Barcode of Life" movement will soon lead to automated systems for species identification and discovery. However, we emphasize that these systems will operate within a Linnaean framework and that collaborations between molecular and morphological taxonomists are critical.

Notre travail sur les araignées fournit une des premières démonstrations du potentiel des codes-barres d'ADN et nous croyons que ses conclusions pourront s'appliquer à diverses échelles à tous les eucaryotes. Nous prédisons aussi que le mouvement du « Code-barre de la vie » entraînera la mise au point de systèmes automatisés pour l'identification et la découverte des espèces. Nous insistons, néanmoins, que ces systèmes s'élaboreront dans un contexte linnéen et que la collaboration entre les taxonomistes moléculaires et les morphologistes en sera un élément essentiel.[Traduit par la Rédaction]
