Analysis of the diversity of the species communities and food webs is essential for a better understanding of the ecosystem and PCR based methods are often used for taxonomic identifications. Here, we describe the development of 21 group-specific primers to amplify short sections of genes encoding nuclear ribosomal DNA from several freshwater invertebrate taxa as a potential approach to identify the prey of invertebrate predators, specified on 130 taxa of freshwater macroinvertebrates. Our… CONTINUE READING
