Webinar II: Understanding the Ecology of eDNA

WHY IS IT SO CRUCIAL?

In the second webinar of the Precision Biomonitoring Webinar Series, we dive deep into the ecology of eDNA; how it behaves in the environment, how ecological factors influence survey design and probability of target eDNA detection, and how the team at Precision Biomonitoring uses these complex features to design surveys.

Webinar III: For what applications can I reliably use environmental DNA methods?

LEARN FROM REAL-LIFE CASE STUDIES

Learn about which application is applications is eDNA proven to be useful, discuss three validated case studies on:
1) A validation study of the elusive, and endangered Jefferson Salamander.
2) Monitor invasive species in Nova Scotia, Canada, and how eDNA surveys can help to make an informed decision about invasive species management for Chain Pickerel and Smallmouth Bass.
3) Comparative study between conventional biomonitoring methods for Brook Trout.
