Data from: Scat DNA provides important data for effective monitoring of mammal and bird biodiversity

Mieke Van Der Heyde, P. W. Bateman, Michael Bunce, Grant Wardell-Johnson, Nicole White & Paul Nevill
Fauna has long been neglected in the monitoring of ecological restoration, despite the key role they play in ecosystem function. Vertebrate surveys can be time consuming and costly, often requiring multiple methodologies and taxonomic expertise, making comprehensive monitoring cost prohibitive. Here we evaluate a new method of assessing mammal and bird diversity through the genetic identification of scat collections. Using DNA metabarcoding of scat collections from three bioregions we generated bird and mammalian assemblage data...
