Conference paper
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 11)


The role of traps as sources of information and for reduction of uncertainty is discussed. This discussion includes time scales and trap problems, interpretations of zeros, population estimation, growth rate estimation, sterile to wild ratio estimation and effects of aggregation on trap catches.
