I will briefly report about three issues in line transect sampling and examine potential effects on density (or abundance) estimation:
Some of this work has been carried out in collaboration with Fátima Morgado and Anabela Afonso at University of Évora, Portugal.
- model selection and model averaging
- projected perpendicular distances
- considering w a parameter to estimate for the detectability function
