The Ecology Special Interest Section of the Environment Institute of
Australia and New Zealand is convening a one-day forum featuring a series
of special presentations about an innovative technology and approach that
enables the detection of wildlife in Australia and New Zealand using eDNA.

eDNA is DNA that is collected from soil, water or air rather than be
directly sampled from an individual animal. Because animals interact with
the environment, DNA is expelled and accumulates in their surroundings.

The presentations are expected to cover a wide range of aspects including:

·         eDNA monitoring of wildlife within catchments across Victoria

·         Using eDNA as a way of trapping wildlife in Victoria

·         Using eDNA to map wildlife across Melbourne

·         Using eDNA to economically monitor aquatic vertebrates in Victoria
