Summary

Two separate and distinctly different samples of coprolitic material from a midden pit at the Eagle Point Shelter (5RB4662) in Rio Blanco County, Colorado were submitted for pollen, phytolith, starch, parasite, macrofloral, and organic residue analysis, the latter using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). One coprolite fragment appears to be human, while a smaller fragment appears to be canid. The combination of multiple analyses is used to gain information regarding diet and local vegetation.
