Research project

Sampling consists in selecting a sample from a population with techniques for efficient and accurate estimating of parameters of that entire population from measurements made on the sample. To overcome problems of quadrat pattern (size, shape, etc.), plotless sampling techniques (PST) were developed. The general objective of this PhD research is an empirical comparison of PST in vegetation studies. Specifically, the study will compare plotless density estimators according, establish method to account for distance measured with errors in density estimation and compare PST in determining the spatial pattern of plant.
