Biodiversity assessments using eDNA metabarcoding are ideal for when efficient, broad-scale biodiversity mapping and monitoring is required. By utilising next generation sequencing technology and comprehensive DNA reference libraries, we undertake biodiversity assessments that can identify all species that have left traces of DNA in an environmental sample. These techniques can detect a range of taxonomic groups including amphibians, vertebrates, fish, decapods, invertebrates and macro invertebrates.
We are industry leaders in this approach and suggest using this method if you aim to:
- Establish your biodiversity inventory or baseline for ongoing monitoring
- Determine your ecosystem condition by gathering data on native/introduced ratio, habitat comparison, environmental conditions or response to management actions
- Determine water or soil health by bacteria or fungi analysis
- Undertake species diet analysis
