Here population at time t+1 is considered as a function of population at time t. Rate of growth in a population is generally worked out in three different ways. Field techniques refer to the standardized methods employed to select, count, measure, capture, mark, and observe individuals sampled from the target population for the purpose of collecting data required to achieve study objectives. The term also includes methods used to collect voucher specimens, tissue samples, and habitat data. Get this from a library! Methods for measuring population change: a systems analysis summary..
