Discrete transect designs for estimating animal population Li, Leah Min


When studying the animal population in the forest, one sometimes collects data along a path which is called a transect. To estimate the size of an animal population, one travels along the transects and counts all animals sighted along the route. The goal of this project is to derive estimators of population size and to determine optimal transect designs.
