Email your summarized data from the visual points to Jin (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of the day on Friday. Be sure to include the names of both partners with your data. Jin will compile all data and upload the compiled results here. Use the compiled results from all pairs of observers in your lab write-up. Write up a 1-2 page synopsis of your findings to turn in the following week. Download the Excel spreadsheet provided to calculate an estimated population size and detectability estimates for each “species” at each habitat. Review the material we went over in lab last week and consider the factors affecting detection probability and how they can alter the interpretation of sampling data. Review the lab handouts and other related materials for more information. Here are the slides of Double Observer Sampling and field datasheet.
