and fauna, an interesting tool has been developed to identify insects and moths that fly through the air.
In recent times many systems have been created to extract DNA from the environment and this is called ecological or EDNA. They are identified by extracting DNA from animal waste, skin and other biological matter in the water Demonstration of DNA extraction has been demonstrated.
Now Fabian Roger, a professor at Leonid University, has collected air samples from three locations in Sweden and successfully identified 85 insects and bugs flying in the air. These include moths, mosquitoes, ants, fleas, whirlpools and flies. In addition, traces of some birds and vertebrates have been found.
In this way, insects and creatures can be identified that may be hidden from other survey methods, but its use also has its limitations. Scientists believe that the technology used to extract DNA from the air, combined with conventional surveys, yields better results.
