Taxonomic resolution of vole diets. Taxonomic resolution of the diets of Microtus oeconomus and Myodes rufocanus according to two methods of diet analysis (microhistology and DNA barcoding). Proportions are taken from total number of hits on identifiable material for microhistology and total number of identified sequences for DNA barcoding. Category "other" includes items not assigned to any taxonomic level by microhistology, but to morphologic groups (e.g. seed, root).
