  1. Zn and AML are the zinc-finger and amelogenin PCRs that were used for sex identification of the tiger scat samples. 'H' indicates that the locus was scored as a half-locus because one additional allele was scored in one of the five amplifications to obtain consensus. Dashed lines indicate that enough PCRs could not be amplified for obtaining consensus genotypes. NA indicates that PCR amplification could not be obtained.
