DNA sequencing of insect soup shows biodiversity

Researchers in England devised a new method for monitoring biodiversity with an insect soup and low cost DNA sequencing, according to a University of East Anglia press release. Douglas Yu, a biology professor and the lead researcher for the study, said analyzing a few hundred ground-up bugs gives researchers equivalent data to traditional intensive methods for a fraction of the cost. He said, compared to high quality data sets analyzing 55,000 arthropods and birds, sequencing bug juice was just as effective. The researchers use a process called metabarcoding to identify bugs and biodiversity of an environment. The measurement could eventually be established as a low cost, low impact way to understand the biodiversity of a system through some of its smallest creatures.

Swiss researchers find plastic particulate widespread in Lake Geneva

Researchers from a Swiss university found plastic particulate is widespread in Lake Geneva, according to a press release from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The researchers sampled the lake in several ways to quantify microplastic pollution. Every sample taken for the study, whether from bird droppings, fish dissection, beach combing or a net drag had plastic particles in it. No quantity of just how much plastic is in the lake was given in the release. Further studies will evaluate plastic content of lakes and rivers across Switzerland.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.
