BEARS, BEAR POOP AND DNA
The brown bears of Norway and Sweden are monitored with the help of the faeces they leave behind moving through the forest. Here you will learn all about how this is actually done and how much information you can get from bear poop.
The webinar will start with an overview over the history of the brown bears in Norway and Sweden, including an introduction to why and how the brown bears are monitored nowadays. I will then give a thorough introduction the laboratory process of how to extract DNA from faeces samples, how to subsequently analyse the DNA and how the results from this analysis are used in scientific research.
