Environmental DNA (eDNA) represents a sensitive and efficient method for noninvasively sampling rare or otherwise hard to monitor taxa, potentially making it a powerful tool for conservation management. Still, this novel method can be affected by sampling protocols, abiotic characteristics of the microhabitat, the focal taxa itself, and primer design. Here we designed 12 species-specific primers for the critically endangered Yangtze finless porpoise (Neophocaena asiaeorientalis asiaeorientalis… Expand
