Data from: eDNA metabarcoding of log hollow sediments and soils highlights the importance of substrate type, frequency of sampling and animal size, for vertebrate species detection

Ethan Ryan, Bill Bateman, Kristen Fernandes, Mieke Van Der Heyde & Paul Nevill
Fauna monitoring often relies on visual monitoring techniques such as camera trappings, which have biases leading to underestimates of vertebrate species diversity. Environmental DNA (eDNA) has emerged as a new source of biodiversity data that may improve biomonitoring; however, eDNA based assessments of species richness remain relatively untested in terrestrial environments. We investigated the suitability of fallen log hollow sediment as a source of vertebrate eDNA, across two sites in south-western Australia - one with...
