Estimating detectability using search experiments

Cindy Hauser, Joslin Moore

Research output: Other contributionResearchpeer-review


During surveys, there is always a risk that we will fail to detect every individual weed.If we understand the detection rate in our survey, then we can predict potential failures and consequences for our weed management programme. Conversely, we can design surveys that reduce risk and expected consequences to an acceptable level.
