Abstract

A standard method of fecal plant cuticle analysis was used to determine the diets of goats, sheep and feral donkeys on the Saiq Plateau of Oman during a year of below average rainfall. Feces were collected monthly from 8 localities. Twenty-three thousand four hundred digital cuticle images of the feces and the plant reference collection were stored in a Microsoft Access
