Abstract

We describe seven group-specific primer pairs that amplify small sections of ribosomal RNA genes suitable for identification of animal groups of major importance as prey items in marine ecosystems. These primer sets allow the isolation of DNA from the target animal groups from mixed pools of DNA, where DNA-based identification using universal primers is unlikely to succeed. The primers are designed for identifying prey in animal diets, but could be used in any situation where these animal groups are to be identified by their DNA. © 2006 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
