Summer break update

Research has continued in the Plant.ID network over the summer, and many congratulations must be given to Physilia and Marcel and their supervisors for the two published papers and preprint that have been published over the last couple of months. Physilia first publication in Environmental DNA  presents the firstlarge-scale molecular dietary study ever on capercailles with 30% of their diet retrieved, with important implications for conservationists. Her other recent preprint in bioRxiv  contributes towards the development of 'extended barcodes' for plant identification using environmental DNA.  In addition, Marcel and his colleagues published a paper in Quaternary Science Reviews analyzing the mammoth (and other megafauna) diets. These are outstanding achievements for our PhD fellows as they complete their PhDs and move on to next stages in their research careers.
