Seawater contains a wealth of genetic information, which represents the biodiversity of numerous species residing within a particular marine habitat. eDNA metabarcoding offers a cost effective, non-destructive method for large scale monitoring of environments, as diverse taxonomic groups are easily detected using metabarcoding assays. Monitoring marine environments along a coastline and over a number of seasons can reveal changes in these environments and provide information for management decisions following an impact event. Following the Fundão...
