  • Is qualitative and quantitative metabarcoding of dung fauna biodiversity feasible?

    In biodiversity assessments, especially of small‐bodied organisms for which taxonomic expertise is lacking, identification by genetic barcoding may be a cost‐effective and efficient alternative to traditional identification of species by morphology, ecology and behavior. Here we test the feasibility and accuracy of such an approach using dung insects of practical relevance in ecotoxicological ...
