Abstract:Noninvasive sampling methods, such as acquiring host genomic DNA from fecal samples for molecular biology research, are increasingly used in endangered wild animals. However, it is difficult to obtain fresh feces in the field. By focusing on the effects of feces after different exposure times in the field on molecular studies for giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), we found that shorter exposure time of feces would lower the level of DNA degradation, and increase the quality of the feces DNA. The degradation level of feces DNA was also related to seasonal variation and field environment. The valid time was no longer than 14 days in spring and autumn, less than 7 days in summer and no longer than 21 days in winter. Moreover, dry environment such as the entrance of the cave may be the best place for preserving feces samples in the field. The results of this study provided guidance for the feces collection of wild giant pandas in the field.
