This coherent text translates the methods of statisticians into "ecological English" so that students may readily apply these methods to the real world. Ecological Methodology, Second Edition provides a balance of material on animal and plant populations. It teaches students of ecology how to design the most efficient tests in order to obtain maximum precision with minimal work. The first part of the text focuses on biological and technical issues in statistical methodology. Students learn about advances that have been made in designing better sampling devices, along with the techniques and equipment used for sampling. The second part deals with creating solid statistical design, and presents all methods that are well-known to statisticians in a language and context that students will easily understand.

3.1.2 Eberhardt's Removal Method A simpler use of removal data to estimate
population size was suggested by Eberhardt (1982) and has been called the “
index-removal” method. If an index of population size (like roadside counts) can

dispersion that can be used on random-point-to-nearest-organism distances was
suggested by Eberhardt (1967) and analyzed further by Hines and Hines (1979):
