Marine environmental DNA in the Anthropocene -- Applications in the Arctic and sub-Arctic MASTS Webinar with Kim Praebel - University of Tromsø, Norway - free

Marine ecosystems are changing at a rapid pace due to the ongoing climate crises, increased organic and biological load from intensifying farming, and by increased human activities in the marine realm. This is especially true for Arctic and sub-Arctic marine ecosystems, where borealization and other ecosystem shifts are happening at unparalleled rates. The currently used surveillance and assessment methods halt behind in documenting and understanding these changing ecosystems. Here, I present some results from our environmental DNA research and show how novel molecular techniques can provide insights and solutions for more timely ecosystem assessments and understandings.
