    About This Project

    Human development of New York and other large cities has led to disrupted urban ecology, including the decimation of once widespread native oysters. Oyster restoration is important for defending against storms, keeping the water clean, and sustaining fisheries and ecosystems. Our study will monitor oyster restoration at Soundview Park, Bronx, using both traditional surveys and cutting edge environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques.
