Lakes380 team member Katie Brasell recently presented some of her PhD research to the Southern eDNA Society.
In her talk titled – “A shaky past: natural pulse disturbance and multi-trophic resilience in a pristine NZ lake revealed with sedDNA” Katie explains why studying a lake with a natural disturbance cycle is important for better understanding the future of our lakes. Using some ecological theory and innovative eDNA tools to help us see more clearly into the mud… Katie explores what happens to a lake food web after being stirred up by high magnitude earthquakes!
