Using eDNA to measure marine biodiversity

Webinar presentation by Michael Knapp, March 2019 (28 mins + Q&A)

Michael presented new research on environmental DNA metabarcoding surveys.

This video will be of particular interest to science, policy and operational staff working in the fields of marine biodiversity, invasive marine species monitoring or marine conservation.

Michael covered the 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 the project team.
