If you’ve seen previous posts, you would realise that I am interested in the topic of imperfect detectability in field surveys. I’m interested in what influences detectability, how to account for it in analyses, and what it means when designing surveillance and survey programs.
Well, we have some new research on the topic, in which Georgia Garrard leads a paper in Methods in Ecology and Evolution that investigates relationships between plant traits and rates of detection. Georgia has written a blog post about the paper. Check it out!
