DNA metabarcoding reveals modern and past eukaryotic communities in a high-mountain peat bog system

12 days ago   |   By Springer

Abstract
Peat bogs located in high mountains are suitable places to study local environmental responses to climate variability. These ecosystems host a large number of eukaryotes with diverse taxonomic and functional diversity. We carried out a metabarcoding study using universal 18S and COI markers to explore the composition of past and present eukaryotic communities of a Pyrenean peat bog ecosystem. We assessed the molecular biodiversity of four different moss micro-habitats along a flood gradient in the lentic Bassa Nera system. Five samples collected from different sediment depths at...
