Seasonal variation in environmental DNA detection in sediment and water samples

  title={Seasonal variation in environmental DNA detection in sediment and water samples},
  author={Andrew S Buxton and Jim J. Groombridge and Richard A Griffiths},
  booktitle={PloS one},
The use of aquatic environmental DNA (eDNA) to detect the presence of species depends on the seasonal activity of the species in the sampled habitat. eDNA may persist in sediments for longer than it does in water, and analysing sediment could potentially extend the seasonal window for species assessment. Using the great crested newt as a model, we compare how detection probability changes across the seasons in eDNA samples collected from both pond water and pond sediments. Detection of both… CONTINUE READING
