Dietary DNA metabarcoding in black-browed albatrosses derived from scats collected at New Island, Steeple Jason Island and Beauchene Island

Adult and chick scats were collected, on New Island and Steeple Jason Island during the 2013/14 and 2014/15 breeding seasons and at New Island, Steeple Jason Island and Beauchene Island during the 2015/16 season. The dataset contains results obtained from DNA metabarcoding of prey DNA in the scat samples, in a pioneer study led by the Australian Antarctic Division (Julie McInnes). Published data will be available through the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Lineage The dataset provides information on the main diet of black-browed albatrosses from New island, Steeple Jason Island and Beauchene Island. Food DNA was excratced from albatrosses' scats and sequenced using universal and fish specific priemrs. The datasets shows the diet of albatross across multiple breeding seasons and breeding sites.
