From the Author:

The book, Monitoring Plant and Animal Populations: A Handbook for Field Biologists, is designed as a manual for biologists, ecologists and botanists responsible for developing monitoring projects for plant and animal populations and communities. It is an outgrowth of a long-running 7-day course taught to agency biologists through the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The authors are primarily field biologists and ecologists directly involved in resource management.

The book is designed to offer readers tools to address the following parts of a natural resource study designed to detect change:

Definition of resource and study objectives

Selection of suitable field techniques

Application of sampling design principles to ensure statistically valid data

Statistical analysis of monitoring data

Although the book has already received wide acceptance and use within the management agencies (an earlier version was released a few years ago as an agency publication), we would like to see the concepts in this book also reach students who are preparing for careers in natural resource management. In our teaching, we have often found our students, all currently employed by various agencies, to not be well-prepared for designing and implementing field studies. We believe this book could be of value to them. You may wish to consider using this book as a text for courses in natural resource measurement, sampling, and monitoring. It is appropriate for upper-level undergraduates or beginning graduate students.

From the Back Cover:

Monitoring Plant and Animal Populations is a thorough overview of monitoring issues. It is designed for field biologists and land managers with a modest statistical background. The authors have written a practical text that will include concrete guidelines for ecologists to follow to design a statistically defensible monitoring program for natural populations and communities.
