The Effect of Animal Movement on Line Transect Estimates of Abundance

Fig 2

Percentage bias in the abundance estimate for strip and line transects.

Bias for strip transect sampling (solid line) calculated from the analytic expression given and for line transects (hazard-rate b = 2) by averaging over 1000 simulations for linear movement (dashed line) and home range movement (dotted line)
