About This Project
The current rate of biodiversity loss calls for immediate actions. The recent commercialisation of portable scientific instruments enables DNA metabarcoding analysis in field-laboratory conditions. We have been developing a harmonised laboratory system for arthropod species identification to assess how environmental change is impacting biodiversity on the remote islands of the Aeolian Archipelago (Italy), which could be scaled up for similar studies.
