Using Environmental DNA (eDNA) to Monitor Aquatic Ecosystems

Using Environmental DNA (eDNA) to Monitor Aquatic Ecosystems Environmental DNA monitoring – eDNA – is at the vanguard of a new wave of technologically advanced monitoring efforts. With roots in soil and paleoecology, eDNA was first used to detect a multicellular aquatic organism– the invasive American bullfrog Lithobates catesbeianus– in a landmark scientific paper by Ficetola et al.…
