Aim: Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding has demonstrated its applicability as a highly sensitive biomonitoring tool across small spatial and temporal scales in marine ecosystems. However, it has rarely been tested across large spatial scales, or biogeographical barriers. Here, we scale up marine eDNA metabarcoding, test its ability to detect a major marine biogeographic break, and evaluate its use as a regional biomonitoring tool in Australia. Location: North-western Australia (NWA) Methods: We applied metabarcoding assays targeting...
