Purpose

Deer and elk were observed along line transects to estimate population abundance using line transect distance sampling. Such distance sampling refers to a class of methods used to estimate densities of biological populations (i.e., numbers of animals per unit area) from a sample of animal sightings and associated distance measurements gathered along line-transects.
