|[en] The study of the diet of an animal contributes to a better knowledge of its ecology.
The present study consists of the analysis of five faeces samples collected in various environments as well as 26 stomach contents, to underline the various food resources consumed by the stone marten.
The results obtained overlap rather well the data of the literature. Therefore, it allows to strenghten the researches carried out in the bordering countries. The conclusions of the present study are the following ones: the stone marten is an animal polyphagous and non-specialized. Its food spectrum covers as well the animal kingdom as the vegetable one. Furthermore, samples allowed to point out seasonal variations in the diet. Also, net differences are observed between urban and rural environments.
Finally, the variety and the relative occurrence of the various elements gathered show how much the stone marten is an opportunistic animal which adapts itself to the environmental resources
