New study using metabarcoding shows niche partitioning between planktivorous fish

Here, we investigate diet overlap between these three planktivorous fishes in the Baltic Sea, utilizing DNA metabarcoding on the 18S rRNA gene and the COI gene, targeted qPCR, and microscopy. Our results show niche differentiation between clupeids and stickleback, and highlight that rotifers play an important role in this pattern, as a resource that is not being used by … More New study using metabarcoding shows niche partitioning between planktivorous fish
