Sampling Techniques



This video focuses on methods used to sample moving animals such as capture-mark-release and recapture. These methods differ from the quadrat methods that are used for plant species sampling or to sample stationary creatures. This video should be viewed alongside the ‘PAG Sampling’ video in the ‘Community-level systems’ topic as some schools may decide to teach both types of sampling within the same topic rotation.
