This dataset includes capture data for insectivorous bats captured with harp traps in Sabah, Malaysia, and dietary metabarcoding data. The dietary data was generated through obtaining bat faeces, extracting the DNA, amplifying it using ZBJ-ArtF1c ZBJ-ArtR2c primers, and then sequencing it on an illumina miseq. Code to aid interpreting the data can be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.17636/01044623 This data was collected as part of the NERC-funded LOMBOK HMTF project, also using a small grant from Bat Conservation International.

This dataset is part of the following
All data was obtained from samples collected in the field, as per the metadata file. Bats were captured using 6 harp traps per night, erected along flyways in the landscape. Bats were then identified in the hand by comparison to a taxonomic key. Guano samples were then analysed as per the description.
