Estimating abundance of rare, small mammals: A case study of the Key Largo woodrat (Neotoma floridana smalli)
(University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis,
Estimates of animal abundance or density are fundamental quantities in ecology and conservation, but for many species such as rare, small mammals, obtaining robust estimates is problematic. In this thesis, I combine elements ...
A unifying model for capture-recapture and distance sampling surveys of wildlife populations
(2015) - Journal article,
Spatially explicit capture-recapture (SECR) methods extend traditional capture-recapture methods for estimating population density by using information contained in the location of traps. The The central feature of the ...
Spatial models for distance sampling data : recent developments and future directions
(2013-11) - Journal article,
Our understanding of a biological population can be greatly enhanced by modelling their distribution in space and as a function of environmental covariates. Density surface models consist of a spatial model of the abundance ...
