  • Abstract

    Invasive feral swine can damage ecosystems, disrupt plant and animal populations, and transmit diseases. Monitoring feral swine populations depends on expensive and labor intensive techniques such as aerial surveys, field surveys for sign, trail cameras, and landowner reports. Environmental DNA (eDNA) provides an alternative method for locating feral swine. From May 2017 to April 2018, swine DNA was artificially introduced into two streams in mid-Michigan. Water samples and data on various stream variables were collected at the location of DNA insertion and along a 400 m transect to investigate potential factors affecting swine DNA detection.
