Description

This book is written to serve as a general reference for biologists and resource managers with relatively little statistical training. It focuses on both basic concepts and practical applications to provide professionals with the tools needed to assess monitoring methods that can detect trends in populations. It combines classical finite population sampling designs with population enumeration procedures in a unified approach for obtaining abundance estimates for species of interest. The statistical information is presented in practical, easy-to-understand terminology.

Reviews

"...a most welcome addition. Thompson, White, and Gowan have written a valuable book, one certainly to be referred to by those following trends in species inventory and monitoring programs. The book offers a great deal to take in, a great many lessons that need to be delivered. Monitoring Vertebrate Populations should be required reading for administrators and resource managers before they undertake funding and program planning. I recommend it." --C. Kenneth Dodd in COPEIA, 1999

"...will enable the wildlife biologist/manager, natural resource administrator, or policy make to better evaluate research concerning the status of wildlife populations. For the statistically impaired or statisiphobics among us, it offers hope and a lighted path toward meaningful data gathering and analysis. It will no doubt earn a place among your most useful professional tests on your workshelf." --Bruce B. Davit in JOURNAL OF RANGE MANAGEMENT, January 1999
