The use of scat surveys to obtain DNA has been well documented in temperate areas, where DNA preservation may be more effective than in tropical forests. Samples obtained in the tropics are often exposed to high humidity, warm temperatures, frequent rain, and intense sunlight, all of which can rapidly degrade DNA. Despite these potential problems, we demonstrate successful DNA amplification and sequencing for faeces of carnivores collected in tropical conditions and quantify how sample condition...
