A Toolbox for Faecal Source Tracking

Our research team at ESR has been developing tools that discriminate among different sources of faecal contamination of water, leading to targeted environmental management interventions. We use molecular and chemical techniques to help identify the source of faecal contamination of water whether it is from farm, domestic or feral animals, humans or birds.

A brief description on "Methods tool box" can be found at Faecal Source Tracking, for the detailed methods please go to following tabs.
