Censuses of living populations are required for many purposes in wildlife management, fisheries and pest control and they are essential in policy making for the protection of the environment.

Exercises in Estimating and Monitoring Abundance. The exercises presented here are designed as a teaching tool to explore various methods in estimating and monitoring abundance of wild species, with an emphasis on animal species.

Goals / Objectives Goals To develop effective sampling methods and models for the assessment and monitoring of fish and wildlife populations. These methods are used to estimate demographic parameters like population sizes, survival rates and recruitment rates.

Abstract. Estimating animal abundance is central to sound management and is an important part of most wildlife research programs. Counting animals is a challenging task that will take you to many fascinating places that you would not otherwise : Hugo Jachmann. Geostatistics for Estimating Fish Abundance will be of vital interest to fisheries research scientists, marine biologists, oceanographers, marine and fish ecologists, environmental scientists and experts involved in the assessment of natural animal resources.

The book has been developed as a result of studies carried out by a collaborative team. Reliable and repeatable methods for estimating animal abundance are funda-mental to the effective study and management of New Zealand species.

New Zealand scientists and conservation managers currently rely on meas-ures of conspicuousness rather than density for indexing the sizes of many New Zealand animal Size: KB. Abundance estimation comprises all statistical methods for estimating the number of individuals in a population.

In ecology, this may be anything from estimating the number of daisies in a field to estimating the number of blue whales in the ocean.
