The methods of specimen preservation, DNA extraction, DNA amplification, choice of primers, and DNA sequencing are described. These are primarily adaptations of those developed by other workers, but the Authors describe modifications that they have found to be optimal when working with odonates. It is likely that some of the described protocols will have more general applications to other arthropods as well.
