Abstract Diet analysis is essential to fully understanding the biology of a species and its function within the ecosystem, and is also key in identifying food web interactions and the population dynamics of predators and prey. There is currently little information on the diet of small to mid-sized carnivores due to their elusive behavior. We used a DNA-based method to analyze the vertebrate prey of the Pallas’s cat (Otocolobus manul) in the Gongga Mountain Nature Reserve of southwestern China… Expand
