A comparison of plotless density estimators using Monte Carlo simulation on totally enumerated field data sets
BackgroundPlotless density estimators are those that are based on distance measures rather than counts per unit area (quadrats or plots) to estimate the density of some usually stationary event, e.g.Expand

Efficacy of Rodenticide Baits for the Control of Three Invasive Rodent Species in Hawaii
We tested the efficacy and palatability of nine commercial rodenticide bait formulations on Polynesian rats (Rattus exulans), roof rats (R. rattus), and house mice (Mus musculus). Efficacy varied byExpand
