Workshop: Introduction to Distance Sampling for Ornithologists
11-14 January 2005, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
This four-day workshop is intended to train participants in the latest methods
for the design and analysis of distance sampling surveys. Distance sampling is
a widely-used group of closely related methods for estimating the size and/or
density of wildlife populations. The workshop is introductory, but we will
teach some more advanced material on the last day. The material is
particularly aimed at ornithologists, but will be useful for anyone interested
in surveying, monitoring and managing wildlife populations. It is taught by
leading researchers in the field from the University of St Andrews, Scotland,
and is hosted by the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station and School of
Forestry at Northern Arizona University.
