      Khachonpisitsak, Salinee (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-29) - Thesis

    • Optimizing sampling design to deal with mist-net avoidance in Amazonian birds and bats 

      Marques, Joao Tiago; Ramos Pereira, Maria J.; Marques, Tiago A.; Santos, Carlos David; Santana, Joana; Beja, Pedro; Palmeirim, Jorge M. (2013-09-18) - Journal article
      Mist netting is a widely used technique to sample bird and bat assemblages. However, captures often decline with time because animals learn and avoid the locations of nets. This avoidance or net shyness can substantially ...
