Distance software: design and analysis of distance sampling surveys for estimating population size
(2010) - Journal article,
1. Distance sampling is a widely used technique for estimating the size or density of biological populations. Many distance sampling designs and most analyses use the software Distance. 2. We briefly review distance sampling ...
Incorporating animal movement into circular plot and point transect surveys of wildlife abundance
(University of St Andrews, 2018) - Thesis,
Estimating wildlife abundance is fundamental for its effective management and conservation. A range of methods exist: total counts, plot sampling, distance sampling and capture-recapture based approaches. Methods have ...
Density estimation of sound-producing terrestrial animals using single automatic acoustic recorders and distance sampling
(2018-12-01) - Journal article,
Obtaining accurate information on the distribution, density, and abundance of animals is an important first step toward their conservation. Methodological approaches using automatic acoustic recorders for species that ...
A description of LATTE outputs
(University of St Andrews, 2015-10-30) - Report,
Delphinid echolocation click detection probability on near-seafloor sensors
(2016-09) - Journal article,
The probability of detecting echolocating delphinids on a near-seafloor sensor was estimated using two Monte Carlo simulation methods. One method estimated the probability of detecting a single click (cue counting); the ...
An efficient acoustic density estimation method with human detectors applied to gibbons in Cambodia
(2016-05-19) - Journal article,
Some animal species are hard to see but easy to hear. Standard visual methods for estimating population density for such species are often ineffective or inefficient, but methods based on passive acoustics show more promise. ...
A risk function for behavioral disruption of Blainville’s beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) from mid-frequency active sonar
(2014-01) - Journal article,
There is increasing concern about the potential effects of noise pollution on marine life in the world’s oceans. For marine mammals, anthropogenic sounds may cause behavioral disruption, and this can be quantified using a ...
Procedure description : using AUTEC’s hydrophones surrounding a DTAGed whale to obtain localizations
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Report,
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 ...
An update to the methods in Endangered Species Research 2011 paper "Estimating North Pacific right whale Eubalaena japonica density using passive acoustic cue counting"
(University of St Andrews, 2012) - Report,
