This paper reports on the analyses of coprolites found at Hogup and Danger Cave and at sites in Glen Canyon. It lists the plant and animal content as well as the parasites and chemical makeup that provide important information about prehistoric diet, resource utilization, ecological adaptation, disease and parasites, seasonality of site occupation, paleoclimate, and behavior.
