In this webinar Dr Michael Knapp (University of Otago) presented new research on environmental DNA metabarcoding surveys.
He describes current methods for measuring marine biodiversity and how new research is helping to simplify and potentially reduce the costs of species monitoring.
The webinar covered accuracy, affordability, repeatability and other practical considerations for implementation of new monitoring tools developed and/or tested by Dr Knapp and the team.
