A new Curtin University study has found that eDNA is a game changer to help protect native animals by using sophisticated DNA technology called DNA metabarcoding.

In two research papers, published in Molecular Ecology and Biodiversity and Conservation, animals and insects across multiple regions in Western Australia were studied to find out where the use of DNA metabarcoding would be most effective to monitor restoration.
