Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Endangered eel located using DNA from one liter of water

(Kobe University) Researchers have shed light on the distribution of Japanese eel by analyzing environmental DNA (eDNA) from small samples of river water. This could enable faster and more effective surveys of Japanese eel populations, and help to conserve this endangered species. The finding was published on Feb. 27 in Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems.
