  • Point process models for spatio-temporal distance sampling data from a large-scale survey of blue whales 

    Yuan, Y.; Bachl, F. E.; Lindgren, F.; Borchers, David Louis; Illian, J. B.; Buckland, S. T.; Rue, H.; Gerrodette, T. (2017-12) - Journal article
    Distance sampling is a widely used method for estimating wildlife population abundance. The fact that conventional distance sampling methods are partly design-based constrains the spatial resolution at which animal density ...
  • Relations among partitions 

    Bailey, Rosemary Anne (Cambridge University Press, 2017) - Book item
    Combinatorialists often consider a balanced incomplete-block design to consist of a set of points, a set of blocks, and an incidence relation between them which satisfies certain conditions. To a statistician, such a design ...

  • A path reconstruction method integrating dead-reckoning and position fixes applied to humpback whales 

    Wensveen, Paul J.; Thomas, Len; Miller, Patrick J O (2015-09-21) - Journal article
    BACKGROUND: Detailed information about animal location and movement is often crucial in studies of natural behaviour and how animals respond to anthropogenic activities. Dead-reckoning can be used to infer such detailed ...
  • DESNT : a poor prognosis category of human prostate cancer

(2017-03-06) - Journal article
