Item description for Estimating Numbers of Terrestrial Birds by J. Michael Scott...

This book was originally published in 1981 as a publication of the Cooper Ornithological Society and was based on the proceedings of a meeting of biologists and statisticians in Asilomar who gathered to examine the methods and assumptions used in estimating bird numbers.

Counting birds has a long tradition. It is the currency of many ornithological studies. Bird counts have been seminal in our knowledge of bird migration, competition, ecology, population dynamics, environmental adaptation, impact of human alterations and island biogeography.

Interest in estimating bird numbers remains high today but is often plagued by unasked or unanswered questions regarding sampling methods and treatment of the results. This book recorded the outcome of a meeting held to address these and other questions. It led to better understanding of what can and cannot be done with datasets.

This volume remains a primary source of information on censusing of birds and other animals, and is frequently quoted in the primary literature of today. Since this volume went out of print some six years ago, demand has markedly increased for copies which are essentially unavailable, attesting to its currency today.
