How Citizen Scientists Track the Life Returning to Michigan’s Rouge River

If the Michigan Department of Natural Resources had additional funding for fish surveys in the Rouge River, where would they use it? That’s what the Friends of the Rouge posed to the agency in 2012. Limited by money and manpower and in a state with an abundance of water that needs monitoring, the DNR can’t survey every part of every watershed - especially one of the largest and most industrious in Michigan. So the Friends of the Rouge nonprofit extended an offer to help. The DNR pointed them toward looking for redside dace, an endangered minnow and monitoring the effects of dam removal.

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.
