    About This Project

    Various human impacts, such as pollution and buildings, can shape freshwater pond ecosystems in the urban landscape of New York City. Ponds are important centers of biodiversity in cities and benefit humans in many ways. This project will inventory the biological communities in seven ponds using cutting-edge environmental DNA collection techniques. Data from our surveys will lead to a deeper understanding of what humans can do to help conserve these important ecosystems for future generations.
