A visibility bias model for aerial surveys of moose on the AOSERP study area

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This project was a continuation of research begun in 1976. Earlier studies had been designed to test the moose census procedures employed, analyze census results, and determine statistically reliable moose population estimates. The project TF 1. 1.1 was designed to develop an analysis model which would produce statistically reliable estimates of visibility bias and total population. The design was applied to an aerial census of a whitetailed deer study area in west-central Alberta and the data from this census was utilized to illustrate the application of the visibility bias model.
