April 2018 — Article in Limnology and Oceanography by MBON researchers at the University of South Florida concludes that all dominant copepod taxa (> 5% of total abundance) were detected with eDNA, T‐DNA, and morphological assessments, demonstrating that eDNA metabarcoding is a promising technique for future biodiversity assessments of pelagic zooplankton in marine systems.
