Statistical approaches to account for false-positive errors in environmental DNA samples

Molecular Ecology Resources

José J Lahoz-MonfortReid Tingley

Abstract

Environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling is prone to both false-positive and false-negative errors. We review statistical methods to account for such errors in the analysis of eDNA data and use simulations to compare the performance of different modelling approaches. Our simulations illustrate...read more
