Item description for Estimation of Animal Abundance by G. A. F. Seber...

Originally published in 1982 this reprint of the second edition of The Estimation of Animal Abundance and Related Parameters has been described as the "bible" of the field.

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. In this book Professor Seber, one of the leading experts in the field, explains in detail the methods that have been developed by ecologists for estimating animal numbers and related parameters such as mortality and birth rates. He insists on the importance of experimental design and describes a great variety of statistical techniques that are required in analyzing the data obtained.

These designs and techniques are classified for easy reference according to the particular types of problems encountered by the field worker and the kind of information that is available. The assumptions underlying practical methods in current use are fully examined, together with procedures for testing their validity. Each method is demonstrated by at least one worked example; in all there are over 90 such examples, mostly using data obtained from natural or free-ranging populations around the world.

Ecologists will find this book -- the first full-length treatment of its subject -- a sound statistical assessment of methods which in the past were frequently developed on an intuitive basis; while applied mathematicians will benefit no less from a study of the interaction between mathematics and biology in this important branch of statistics. Field workers will be stimulated and helped by the real-life examples and the practical nature of the work.
