DNA reveals seasonally shifting populations in an iconic Snowdonia lake

An iconic lake at the foot of Mount Snowdon has played a vital role in improving how lakes and rivers can be monitored in the future. Llyn Padarn, viewed at the foot of Snowdon by thousands of visitors each year, was the testbed for research that could lead to far more efficient and speedy environmental monitoring of our lakes and rivers, following research by Bangor University and others, published in Nature Communications ( coi10.1038/ncomms14087 ).
