• Revealing an Invasion Risk of Fish Species in Qingdao Underwater World by Environmental DNA Metabarcoding

    3 days ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Environmental DNA metabarcoding has emerged as a potentially powerful tool to monitor invasive fish species. As an alternative tool for biodiversity monitoring, eDNA metabarcoding had been used to detect species in aquariums, which represents an important transit avenue for introducing non-indigenous species with high population densities. In this study, eDNA metabarcoding as well as morphological characterization were used to reveal the diversity of non-indigenous species in a large aquarium at Qingdao Underwater World. Environmental DNA metabarcoding of 14 water samples at five...
