Observer error in counts of macropod scats



Observer error in counts of macropod scats



Wildlife Research 27(3): 277-282



The accuracy of faecal pellet, or scat, count data can be reduced by observer error. Two experiments were carried out to determine the proportion of Bennett's wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) and Tasmanian pademelon (Thylogale billardierii) scats which were misidentified by observers, and the proportion of scats which were overlooked during counts.
