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 ...
Behavioural changes of a long-ranging diver in response to oceanographic conditions
(2007) - Thesis,
The development of an animal-borne instrument that can record oceanographic measurements (CTD-SRDL) has enabled the collection of oceanographic data at a scale relevant to the counterpart behavioural data, both in time and ...
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 ...
The importance of analysis method for breeding bird survey population trend estimates
(1996) - Journal article,
Population trends from the Breeding Bird Survey are widely used to focus conservation efforts on species thought to be in decline and to test preliminary hypotheses regarding the causes of these declines. A number of ...
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 ...
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 ...
