Eukaryote Metabarcoding from Copper Mescosm Experiment
eDNA metabarcoding was performed to assess the effects of copper on the establishment of the benthic eukaryote community within a series of environmentally relevant copper contaminated freshwater mesocosms. The data is obtained from a recolonization experiment contained five treatments : control (C) and four sediment copper concentrations... more (very low (VL), low (L), high (H) and very high (VH)), each with four replicates. The data represents samples obtained on seven occasions subsequent to the experiment being established: 15, 31, 135, 161, 365, 407 and 497 days.
