With pollution, resource development, and climate change affecting our environment, reliably tracking changes in distribution of at-risk and invasive species is paramount for good resource management practices. This is particularly challenging for species that are difficult to find. However, using cutting edge tools from molecular biology, these species can be uncovered through the detection of environmental DNA (eDNA) in a scoop of water. We will take a tour through the wonderful world of eDNA and see how it can transform our understanding of ecosystems and our impacts on them.
