The molecular analysis of predation through specific DNA amplification has been utilized extensively over the last decade, and has been shown to be fast and effective. However, it is necessary to evaluate the prey detectability half-life if we are to correctly infer the relevance of particular predators to particular pests and to accurately model the effect of biocontrol. We present here the design and analysis of a set of primers to amplify olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae) DNA in predator… CONTINUE READING
