A New Approach for Analyzing Bird Densitiies from Variable Circular-plot Counts
Entry ID: brdpier0003

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: An approach for calculating bird densities from variable circular-plot
counts
is described. The approach differs from previous methods in that data from
several surveys are pooled and detection distances are adjusted as if all
distances were recorded by a single observer under a given set of field
conditions. Adjustments for covariates that affect detection distances such as
observer, weather, ... View entire text

Purpose: To calculate bird densities from variable circular-plot counts.
