ID from droppings

 

Faeces contain DNA of both the host species and its prey, allowing both to be identified.

Depending on the context, we apply a variety of analysis methods to faecal samples to make species identifications.

For more information about our Species from Faeces services for bats and otters, please visit the links below. For other species, please contact us to discuss.

We have carried out diet assessment on faecal samples from bats (featured in this blog post) and fish-eating birds and mammals. Get in touch if you are interested in learning more.
