Description

This is both a practical handbook for experienced wildlife researchers and a textbook for graduate students in ecology and natural resource management. It presents methods for experimental inference and market-recapture statistical studies for fish and wildlife investigations. The data presented from the methodologies are important in light of the growing need for research on our environment and its fish and wildlife populations. The book emphasizes the design of field studies, and the statistical inferences that can be made from observed changes in animal abundance and populations. The information presented here is important for the management of wildlife populations, as well as decision-making related to social and economic concerns, often arising from issues about the effects of human activities on wild populations. Biologists, ecologists, biometricians and fish and game managers should find this book valuable in their work.
