The Effect of Animal Movement on Line Transect Estimates of Abundance

Fig 4

Frequency of detections at each perpendicular distance from the line.

Estimated histogram of recorded distances averaged over 1000 simulations for line transect sampling (hazard-rate b = 2) with linear animal movement at animal speeds 0% (black solid), 20% (red dashed) 80%(green dotted) and 150% (purple dotdash)
