Data from: Effects of prey quality and predator body size on prey DNA detection success in a centipede predator

Bernhard Eitzinger, Einar Michael Unger, Michael Traugott & Stefan Scheu
Predator body size and prey quality are important factors driving prey choice and consumption rates. Both factors might affect prey detection success in PCR-based gut content analysis, potentially resulting in over- or underestimation of feeding rates. Experimental evidence, however, is scarce. We examined how body size and prey quality affect prey DNA detection success in centipede predators. Due to metabolic rates increasing with body size, we hypothesized that prey DNA detection intervals will be significantly...
