|1) Association of the 3 techniques when they completely agreed with each other.|
|2) Association of 2 techniques when one of the methods does not provide taxonomic information about the host.|
|3) Trichology + DNA sequencing when macroscopy provides taxonomic information that does not agree with the obtained by other techniques.|
4) Macroscopy + DNA sequencing DNA when:|
- Trichology provided information on small carnivores (mustelids and procionids), which are incompatible with the morphology of samples with large fecal volume.
- Different species of small felids were identified by trichology and sequencing.
|Unindentified species of Carnivores / Artiodactyls|
|1) Complete disagreement with all information obtained by the techniques.|
|2) Taxonomic information from the host obtained only by a single identification technique.|
|3) Identification of a feline and a canine by trichology and sequencing.|
|4) Absence of information on gene sequencing and information on small carnivores (mustelids and procionids) by trichology, which are incompatible with the morphology of samples with large fecal volume.|
|5) Absence of taxonomic information on the host species.|
