Overview of population monitoring, aiming aims to be an accessible introduction to field techniques for measuring important attributes of animal and plant populations. It also covers different ways of recording monitoring data in the field and describes means for entering and managing field monitoring data sets with computers.
A handbook to help field biologists and land managers cope with monitoring is a worthwhile product. Professor Michael McGowan, San Francisco State University "Such a text could easily form the basis for undergraduate and graduate courses in institutions having programs which include wildlife, fisheries, ecology, or conservation biology. It would also be important reading for state and federal agency personnel and all those biologists involved in the ecological consulting field." Professor Gary Vinyard, University of Nevada at Reno "One of the most intractable problems facing ecologists and conservationists conducting manipulative experiments on ecosystems is monitoring the outcome. Without such monitoring the experiments, of course, are worthless, so careful considerations of experimental design and recording techniques prior to the establishment of the manipulations are always worthwhile, and it is here that this practical manual seeks to exist." Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, 2002
