The count of number of organisms by the areal method

  • V. L. Samokhvalov


A model is proposed to link the basic parameters of a population obtained by the areal method of count. The model is based on regular changes of occurrence and abundance consequent upon changes in the area of the sample plot. This method is applicable to the conditions of aggregation of counted species on the plot under study.

Key words
