Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 2926.

Public Summary
DNA based approaches will be used to study key features of the ecology of whales, penguins and krill. Standard methods cannot accurately estimate what prey species these predators consume, how old they are, or how they are related to the rest of their species. This project will apply novel DNA based methods to biopsy or scat ... View entire text
