The use of eDNA sampling for fish and amphibian monitoring is widely known. Fisheries biologists, in particular, have embraced the eDNA revolution. Over 150 papers in the published literature used sampled water for the detection of everything from minnows (Rhinichthys cobitis and Meda fulgida; Dysthe et al. 2017) to whale sharks (Rhincodon typus; Sigsgaard et al. 2016).It is increasingly clear, however, that eDNA sampling also has much to offer wildlife biologists
working with mammals, birds and other taxa.
