Gammarus fossarum found in the UK using eDNA/DNA metabarcoding

Our new paper is out in Aquatic Invasions, click here to read how we used metabarcoding of DNA and eDNA samples to discover a previously unrecorded Gammaridae in UK rivers. This is one of the first examples of this technique picking up a previously unrecorded taxa and highlights what an important tool eDNA/DNA metabarcoding could be for early detection of new invasive species.
