9780198509271: Introduction to Distance Sampling: Estimating Abundance of Biological Populations

Offers a comprehensive introduction to distance sampling, a statistical method used by many biologists and conservationists to estimate animal abundance. The text discusses point transect sampling and line transect sampling and also describes several other related techniques. There are updates on study design and field methods, laser range finders, theodolites and the GPS and advice is given on a wide range of survey methods. Analysis methods have also been generalized, through the use of various types of multiplier and exercises for students in wildlife and conservation management are included.

Review:


"This text, an update of the 1993 book, Distance Sampling, provides a wide range of statistical methods to estimate the density or abundance of biological populations. The updated text features an extensive revision of the chapter on study design and field methods, and discussions of new technologies such as laser range finders, theodolites, and the Geographical Positioning System. It serves as a reference text for quantitative biologists, wildlife managers and statisticians involved in wildlife monitoring programs, as well as a text for graduate students in wildlife and conservation management. The six authors, from Scotland and the U.S., are specialists in this field."--SciTech Book News

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book introduces the suite of techniques known as distance sampling , so-called because the common theme is the sampling of distances of objects from a line or point. The objects are usually animals or groups of animals ( clusters ), and the primary aim is to estimate their density or abundance in a survey area. In line transect sampling, the sampled distances are the shortest or perpendicular distance from a detected object to the line. It is the most widely used method for assessing the abundance of a wide range of terrestrial and marine animals. In point transect sampling, distances of detected objects from the sampled points are recorded. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to both techniques, and also describes several related techniques. Introduction to Distance Sampling updates the 1993 book Distance Sampling , which was the first, and until now, only book devoted to the topic. The book is aimed at quantitative biologists and wildlife managers, and statisticians involved in wildlife monitoring programmes. Of particular significance in this update is the chapter on study design and field methods, which has been extensively rewritten and extended. New technologies such as laser range finders, theodolites and the Geographical Positioning System (GPS) are discussed, and advice is given on a wide range of survey methods. Analysis methods have also been generalized, through the use of various types of multiplier. Many exercises have been introduced, to make the book more useful to graduate students in wildlife and conservation management. Codice libro della libreria LIB9780198509271
