Críticas:

'There are too few books like this that help students to see the broad picture of census methods and yet warn them of the censusing sins listed in the last chapter of the book … This book will assist university lecturers in teaching the methods essential to developing reliable databases for conservation and management, and for testing ecological theory.' Charles J. Krebs, Trends in Ecology and Evolution

'… easy to read and with a full discussion of biases as well as usages there's every potential for this text to be an essential reader for ecology students (and staff!).' British Ecological Society, TEG News

'... an excellent guide ... The book will be useful to ecologists at all levels.' Aslib Book Guide

'Well illustrated with line drawings, tables, graphs etcetera this book provides a comprehensive overview of the most important methods for those working on field studies in population and behavioural ecology - amateur and professional alike.' Bryan Sage, Country-side

'Anyone planning a census programme as part of a conservation monitoring project should consult this book.' Peter D. Moore, New Scientist

'… a must for every student of ecology and should be used by every individual interested in counting organisms in the field. Researchers in population and behavioural ecology and those interested in conservation of species would find this book very useful.' J. P. S. Chauhan, International Journal of Ecology and Environmental Sciences

'A comprehensive handbook … an excellent book for beginners and professionals alike.' M. Bonsall, Biologist

Reseña del editor:

Virtually any exercise in ecology will require some knowledge of the techniques for carrying out a census of population numbers. This practical text outlines clearly, with worked examples, the main techniques used by field ecologists to enumerate plants and animals. Each taxonomic group is treated separately, with detailed descriptions of appropriate census methods; their advantages, disadvantages and biases. Techniques for measuring a wide range of environmental variables are also included. The final chapter lists the 20 most common censusing sins. Concise yet comprehensive, this book provides a unique overview of the most important methods for those working on field studies in population and behavioural ecology and conservation biology at all levels, from the beginner to the practising professional.
