The Challenge

Our Role

The team used NatureMetrics’ eDNA services to track soil biodiversity, with their first survey revealing that natural forest soils support twice as many fungi species as deforested soils in their proposed replanting sites, indicating soil fungi as a potent indicator for tracking reforestation success.

In a recent webinar, Arnout Asjes, CTO of Land Life Company, highlighted NatureMetrics’ eDNA services as the most promising method for them because the technology gives them:

  • Standardised methodology – methods are established & NatureMetrics is a well known and trusted company
  • Robustness – NatureMetrics’ eDNA methods can be used globally
  • Practicality – No need for internal high expertise
  • Comprehensiveness – eDNA allows for different analyses and tracking of many indicators
