WinBUGS for population ecologists: Bayesian modeling using Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods.
(Springer Series: Environmental and Ecological Statistics, 2008) - Book item,
The computer package WinBUGS is introduced. We first give a brief introduction to Bayesian theory and its implementation using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms. We then present three case studies showing how ...
Models of random wildlife movement with an application to distance sampling
(2007) - Thesis,
In this paper we present three models of random wildlife movement: a one dimensional model of wildlife-observer encounters on roads, an analogous two dimensional model, and an further two-dimensional model that borrows ...
Retrospective power analysis
(1997) - Journal article,
Many papers have appeared in the recent biological literature encouraging us to incorporate statistical power analysis into our hypothesis testing protocol (Peterman 1990; Fairweather 1991; Muller & Benignus 1992; Taylor ...
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 ...
A unified framework for modelling wildlife population dynamics
(2005) - Journal article,
This paper proposes a unified framework for defining and fitting stochastic, discrete-time, discrete-stage population dynamics models. The biological system is described by a state–space model, where the true but unknown ...
Density estimation and time trend analysis of large herbivores in Nagarhole, India
(2005) - Thesis,
Density estimates for six large herbivore species were obtained through analysis of line transect data from Nagarhole National Park, south-western India, collected between 1989 and 2000. These species were Chital (Axis ...
Most primitive groups are full automorphism groups of edge-transitive hypergraphs
(2015-01-01) - Journal article,
We prove that, for a primitive permutation group G acting on a set of size n, other than the alternating group, the probability that Aut(X,YG) = G for a random subset Y of X, tends to 1 as n tends to infinity. So the ...
Nested row-column designs for near-factorial experiments with two treatment factors and one control treatment
(2015-10) - Journal article,
This paper presents some methods of designing experiments in a block design with nested rows and columns. The treatments consist of all combinations of levels of two treatment factors, with an additional control treatment.
Most switching classes with primitive automorphism groups contain graphs with trivial groups
(2015-06) - Journal article,
The operation of switching a graph Gamma with respect to a subset X of the vertex set interchanges edges and non-edges between X and its complement, leaving the rest of the graph unchanged. This is an equivalence relation ...
Circular designs balanced for neighbours at distances one and two
(2014-12) - Journal article,
We define three types of neighbour-balanced designs for experiments where the units are arranged in a circle or single line in space or time. The designs are balanced with respect to neighbours at distance one and at ...
