Field technicians during a Bureau of Land Management training session
Instructors teaching line-point intercept vegetation sampling methods to field technicians at a Bureau of Land Management Riparian & Wetland Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) strategy training near Elko, NV. The Pacific Northwest eDNA Laboratory is working with the BLM to incorporate eDNA sampling into the AIM strategy. This will provide both agencies with data on animal species distribution in addition to the soil, vegetation, and water source monitoring data already collected by the BLM.
