A key component of the emergence of conservation genetics as a recognisable subdiscipline of conservation biology over the last ten years has been the development of methods to genetically assess and monitor populations of endangered species non-invasively. The rapid development of methodologies for ensuring the accurate capture of molecular data from elusive, easily stressed or potentially dangerous (!) organisms and concerns over the accuracy of the data produced have prompted a number of excellent reviews on the subject in recent times (e.g. Taberlet et al. 1999; Taberlet and Luikart 1999; Piggott and Taylor 2003; Woodruff 2003; Wayne and Morin 2004). Here, we will review the issues and wide-ranging applications of non-invasive genetic analysis without focusing on the molecular technicalities in great detail.
