Dr Morgan Ellis  will discuss some of the latest findings from the EcoGenetics lab on the invasive Asian shore crab. This includes a number of exiting projects such as investigating the potential original location the Asian shore crabs spread from, using DNA to determine what they’ve been eating in comparison to our native crabs, and using eDNA to map their distribution. Come and join us to learn what DNA can tell us about this marine pest and what you can do to help!
