Beyond raw biodiversity data.
Access nature intelligence.
Make sense of your biodiversity data with a suite of metrics and indicators powered by eDNA.
The total number of species detected.
Increasing Species Richness can indicate more resources & habitats are available at your site, or your site has become better connected.
The number of species on the IUCN Red List classified as Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered.
An increase in the number of threatened species is generally associated with a positive trend in biodiversity or habitat condition
The quantity of ecosystem functions bacteria communities can perform.
Increasing Bacterial Functional Diversity implies the bacteria community can perform more ecological functions & respond to environmental changes.
The total number of invasive species detected in each sample or site.
An increase in the number of invasive species is generally associated with a negative trend in biodiversity
The variety of species types that occur in a community.
Increasing Evolutionary Diversity can indicate a reduction in pressures at your site and increasing resilience of the community.
The quantity of feeding strategies in a fungal community.
An increase in Fungal Functional Diversity implies more pathways for nutrient cycling to occur which can increase soil fertility.
*part of Marine Fish Community Health
How intact the food-chain is.
Increasing Fish Food-Chain Integrity indicates the return of large predators and an improving ecosystem.
How economically valuable your fish community is.
An increase in the commercial value indicates your fish community consists of more commercially important species.
The proportion of fish species considered vulnerable to human disturbance.
An increase in the Prevalence of Sensitive Species implies that a fish community has more vulnerable species & suggests human pressures have been reduced.
The ratio of fungi to bacteria DNA in soil, providing an indication of soil health.
An increase in Soil Fungal:Bacterial Ratio indicates progress towards healthier soils & good-quality stored carbon.
The pollution level in marine ecosystems using invertebrate indicators.
A decrease in the Marine Sediment Pollution Index suggests there is less pollution as pollution-sensitive species are present.
