Fine‐tuning for the tropics: application of eDNA technology for invasive fish detection in tropical freshwater ecosystems
It is shown that eDNA technology can be effectively used in tropical ecosystems to detect invasive fish species and established a minimum detection limit for tilapia, and high water temperatures did not affect eDNA degradation rates. Expand
Sustainable bush produce systems: progress report 2004–2006
[Extract] Solanum centrale (JM Black) is the focal species of the research reported here because it has an existing commercial value and has provided the bulk of commercial bush food produce sourcedExpand
Enhancing tropical conservation and ecology research with aquatic environmental DNA methods: an introduction for non‐environmental DNA specialists
Biodiversity conservation is a worldwide concern and proper management of threatened species or communities depends on reliable and accurate data collection. Despite the broad utility ofExpand
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Santalum lanceolatum and Santalum leptocladum (Santalaceae).
Primers developed for the first time in the native Australian sandalwood species Santalum lanceolatum will be useful for studies of clonality, genetic diversity and spatial genetic structure in wild populations and when coupled with other molecular techniques will help investigate the relationship between S. l Lanceolatum and S. leptocladum. Expand
Microsatellite markers in the Australian desert plant, Solanum centrale (Solanaceae).
Six highly polymorphic co-dominant loci will be useful for investigating genetic diversity and as a simple way of estimating ploidy of wild populations of Solanum centrale. Expand
Environmental DNA (eDNA) survey of the Tilapia in the Fitzroy Basin
It appears as if tilapia are spreading throughout the Fitzroy River Basin, and in some water bodies they appear to be at reasonable densities as indicated by eDNA and the success of electrofishing, while in others low eDNA detection levels suggest lower abundances, or more localized infestations.

Environmental DNA (eDNA) survey of Tilapia infestations in the Moranbah/Isaac region
Objectives: Conduct a survey of tilapia infestations in the Moaranbah/ISAAC region using environmental DNA(eDNA)as the detection method. Outcomes: Based on the eDNA survey results, tilapia areExpand
The utility of eDNA as a tilapia surveillance tool
Environmental DNA surveillance has proven to be an effective early detection tool for tilapia incursions and likely to be more sensitive than traditional survey methods but requires considerable care and precision in its implementation. Expand
Environmental DNA (eDNA) survey of Tilapia on the mid coast (Geraldton region) of Western Australia
The results from this survey strongly suggest a widespread detection of tilapia and the lack of contamination in controls that were included leans to the results being reliable. Expand
Environmental DNA (eDNA) survey of Tilapia in the lower Pioneer catchment
The eDNA survey detected tilapia in four sites from the Goose Ponds and Beconsfield, and the detection rates for Tilapia were low in all samples where tilapio were detected, which may be due to low levels of infestation or a sampling effect. Expand
