Assessment of fish communities using eDNA: effect of spatial sampling design in lentic systems of different sizes

Shan Zhang, Qi Lu, Yiyan Wang, Xiaomei Wang, Jindong Zhao & Meng Yao
Freshwater fish biodiversity is quickly decreasing and requires effective monitoring and conservation. Environmental DNA (eDNA)-based methods have been shown to be highly sensitive and cost-efficient for aquatic biodiversity surveys, but few studies have systematically investigated how spatial sampling design affects eDNA-detected fish communities across lentic systems of different sizes. We compared the spatial patterns of fish diversity determined using eDNA in three lakes of small (SL; 3 ha), medium (ML; 122 ha) and large (LL;...
