Molecular detection techniques can be used in species monitoring, pathogen surveillance, dietary analysis, and a variety of other ecological applications. In the February 2020 issue of Frontiers, Mosher et al. present a communication framework that can help to guide collaborative partnerships between laboratory scientists, resource managers, and ecologists who employ these techniques.Read more

Across taxa listed under the US Endangered Species Act, recent findings indicate that – in general – species with such traits were often designated for protection earlier than their smaller, more restricted, quieter, and more solitary counterparts. In the March issue of Frontiers, Lepczyk et al. explain how the ESA listing process could benefit by minimizing similar bias in the future.Read more
