Media reviews

"This text, an update of the 1993 book, Distance Sampling, provides a wide range of statistical methods to estimate the density or abundance of biological populations. The updated text features an extensive revision of the chapter on study design and field methods, and discussions of new technologies such as laser range finders, theodolites, and the Geographical Positioning System. It serves as a reference text for quantitative biologists, wildlife managers and statisticians involved in wildlife monitoring programs, as well as a text for graduate students in wildlife and conservation management. The six authors, from Scotland and the U.S., are specialists in this field."--SciTech Book News
