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 ...
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 ...
Acoustic and foraging behavior of a Baird’s beaked whale, Berardius bairdii, exposed to simulated sonar
(2014-11-13) - Journal article,
Beaked whales are hypothesized to be particularly sensitive to anthropogenic noise, based on previous strandings and limited experimental and observational data. However, few species have been studied in detail. We describe ...
Optimal cross-over designs for full interaction models
(2014-11) - Journal article,
We consider repeated measurement designs when a residual or carry-over effect may be present in at most one later period. Since assuming an additive model may be unrealistic for some applications and leads to biased ...
Dose response severity functions for acoustic disturbance in cetaceans using recurrent event survival analysis
(2015-11-20) - Journal article,
Behavioral response studies (BRSs) aim to enhance our understanding of the behavior changes made by animals in response to specific exposure levels of different stimuli, often presented in an increasing dosage. Here, we ...
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.
Constructing flag-transitive, point-imprimitive designs
(2016-05-04) - Journal article,
We give a construction of a family of designs with a specified point-partition and determine the subgroup of automorphisms leaving invariant the point-partition. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for a design in ...
