Data from: Metabarcoding for the parallel identification of several hundred predators and their preys: application to bat species diet analysis

Maxime Galan, Jean-Baptiste Pons, Orianne Tournayre, Eric Pierre, Maxime Leuchtmann, Dominique Pontier & Nathalie Charbonnel
Assessing diet variability is of main importance to better understand the biology of bats and design conservation strategies. Although the advent of metabarcoding has facilitated such analyses, this approach does not come without challenges. Biases may occur throughout the whole experiment, from fieldwork to biostatistics, resulting in the detection of false negatives, false positives or low taxonomic resolution. We detail a rigorous metabarcoding approach based on a short COI minibarcode and two-step PCR protocol enabling...
