About this Textbook

After the success of the first edition, Wildlife Study Design returns with a second edition showcasing a substantial body of new material applicable to the study design of ecology, conservation and management of wildlife. Building on reviews of the first edition and feedback from workshops and graduate teaching, this new edition, authored by Michael Morrison, William Block, M. Dale Strickland, Bret Collier, and Markus Peterson, proves to be a valuable guide and reference for scientists and resource managers, as well as being a useful textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Taking an approach from both a basic and applied perspective, the book covers numerous aspects of study design including variable classification, the necessity of randomization and replication in wildlife study design, the three major types of designs in decreasing order of rigor, detection probabilities, adaptive cluster methods, double sampling, sampling of rare species, effect size and power, and impact assessment, just to name a few. The concepts provided by the book make study design both accessible and comprehensive to a wide array of readers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Despite the large number of wildlife and conservation studies that are conducted, researchers and resource managers have not had a comprehensive guide to planning new studies. This book fills that need by covering all aspects of study designs, including surveys of major types of studies and variables, impact assessment, sampling strategies, inventory and monitoring, and analysis of data." (Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment, Issue 1, 2000)
