Announcing Population Estimation by Removal Sampling

A new Windows 95 program from PISCES Conservation Ltd

Population Estimation by Removal Sampling features three easy to use
- Constant probability of capture - the maximum likelihood method of
- Variable probability of capture maximum likelihood method - the
probability of capture during the first sample differs from that in
subsequent samples which are assumed constant.
- A regression method.

Using maximum likelihood methods the program calculates a population
estimate, the upper and lower 95 % confidence intervals and the
probability of fit of the model.

The program is easy to use and presents results graphically. Graphs can
be exported and printed in a variety of formats including metafiles and
bitmaps. While designed for the professional biologist the program is
readily used by students. 

Removal Sampling is particularly useful for: 
- The estimation of fish densities using data collected by electric
- Small mammal population estimation using traps.
- Studies on insects that live in small, discrete populations that can
be sampled using techniques such as sweep netting or pitfall traps.

Removal Sampling allows almost instantaneous comparison of the various
methods and rapid sub-division of the data. Data from spreadsheets such
as Excel can be imported as CSV files.
