Abstract

Detection experiments are designed to reveal which kinds of targets are likely to be detected and left undetected during environmental surveys. These experiments can help plan surveys and reliably interpret survey data. In this paper we outline the designs of three detection experiments. The first evaluates UAVs and human inspectors for detecting a simulated disease in a vineyard. The second and third experiments are two phases in the evaluation of dogs trained to detect the scent of hawkweeds. The experiments illustrate a variety of approaches, each selected to serve the management objectives, priorities, knowledge and resources available in that program at the time.
