An improved preparation technique for identification of plant cuticle in animal faeces

An improved preparation technique for identification of plant cuticle in animal faeces

New Zealand journal of botany: 14 (1) 117-119

The method involves soaking fresh sheep pellets in fine nylon mesh bags for about 2 wk followed by gentle washing through 2 sieves, decanting and using ethyl alcohol as the liquid. Even fragile species such as Trifolium repens and Anthoxanthum odoratum were identifiable.
