King, R. A., Davey, J. S., Bell, J. R., Read, D. S., Bohan, D. A., & Symondson, W. O. (2012). Suction sampling as a significant source of error in molecular analysis of predator diets. Bulletin of Entomological Research, 102(03), 261-266. https://doi.org/10.1017/S0007485311000575

The molecular detection of predation is a fast growing field, allowing highly specific and sensitive detection of prey DNA within the gut contents or faeces of a predator. Like all molecular methods, this technique is prone to potential sources of er... Read More about Suction sampling as a significant source of error in molecular analysis of predator diets.
