Approximately each type of existence has the capability to multiply and bring up at a truly stunning expense. examine plagues of locusts or mice. truly, for the majority of animals this doesn't ensue, another way they'd swamp the realm and break all of the vegetation.

Sample text

Situating a macroplot requires some decisions. Will the plot(s) be located in the area most likely to be affected by adverse management? Will you attempt to locate the plot(s) in a representative area of the population, and if so, how will you define what is representative? Will your main criteria be ease of access? Chapter 8 discusses these issues in more detail. Selecting Intensity Intensity of monitoring can be defined as the complexity of methods used to collect information. Monitoring intensity roughly equates to time, but also relates to the skills required to collect information.

One option is to select a portion of the population as a key area or macroplot, monitor only within that area, and agree among interested parties that the results will be applied to management of the entire population (see Chapter 15). The drawback is that you must assume that the key area functions as an indicator for the entire population. Inferences cannot be made to the entire population based on data. Changes measured on the macroplot mayor may not represent those occurring outside of the macroplot.
