Ecological Monitoring

WCS uses a range of tools for ecological monitoring including:

We also provide support for the statistical design of ecological monitoring surveys and for the analysis of the resulting data using continually evolving specialized techniques.

There are many excellent forums covering best practices for capture-recapture & occupancy analyses, including the PhiDot forum. For distance sampling we recommend joining the Distance Sampling Google group.

For general support for SMART Survey, use the SMART Community Forum.  For WCS staff and WCS supported programs, if you have strategic or urgent questions relating to SMART Survey, Wildlife Insights or Habitat Monitoring Tools, including requests around design and analysis, please submit a request here.
