eDNA Fungi and Beetles
This project is wildlife based and focuses on grassland, concentrating on two different, often overlooked species groups, with a common thread running through it of e(nvironmental) DNA.
The overarching purpose of the eDNA is to seek cost effective, innovative solutions to make rapid assessments of biodiversity with potential future applications in the work of wildlife and conservation trusts but more widely in that of Natural Resources Wales to more quickly assess protected site conditions so they can survey more sites with their limited resources and for the Sustainable Farming Scheme to gather baseline and post intervention information.
Total project cost: £20,426.00 RDP Amount: £16,341.00
