Weldon, L., O’Leary, C., Steer, M., Newton, L., Macdonald, H., & Sargeant, S. L. (2020). A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. Environmental DNA, 2(4), 587-600. https://doi.org/10.1002/edn3.91

The European eel, Anguilla anguilla, is classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. To protect what remains of the European eel population, accurate monitoring methods for this species are important. Environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques are gaini...

The use of storm fragments and biodegradable replanting methods allows for a low-impact habitat restoration method of seagrass meadows, in the eastern Aegean Sea (2020)
Journal Article
Ward, E., Meek, S., Gordon, D., Cameron, T., Steer, M., Smith, D., …Tsimpidis, T. (2020). The use of storm fragments and biodegradable replanting methods allows for a low-impact habitat restoration method of seagrass meadows, in the eastern Aegean Sea. Conservation Evidence, 17, 1-16

Seagrasses are important marine ecosystems but are vulnerable to physical damage from anthropogenic activities such as anchoring and trawling. Replanting damaged areas can represent a viable restoration strategy, yet current methods rely on the remov...
