A useful tip watch

1. Ok this may sound really stupid... but i was just redoing Jan 2005
And i remembered that (as you may have noted) there is a question about smapling methods
It asks for a named organism in a named habitat
Not one person in our class named an organism or a habitat
Beware!! Read the question!! And highlight
2. monkey in a tree?
3. oh my god i have not revised this
4. Hehe yes monkey in a tree would probably work

Really would want something like
- nettles in a forest (using a quadrat)
- limpet on a rocky shore (using a quadrat)
- swimming mayfly nymph in a river (kick sampling)

Remember to state it's random and what you'll do with the data and to repeat
5. How about a lion in the jungle...using the lincoln index, Capture and release technique using a net.
LOL...Oh yes most definitely a sign, on my way to becoming insane
6. OH **** Thank-you so much i utterly forgot to revise the lincoln index (i've barely revised any of the unit 5 ecology crap) ... gimme a sec and i'll give you some rep!!
7. if u do maths u might be able to derive the lincoln index urself......the fraction of marked recaptured animals out of the total recaptured equals the fraction of marked animals over the total population....... s2 / r = s1 / x where s2 is marked recaptured animals ans s1 is the total marked and r = total recaptured. you can then do cross multipication to find x (the total population).

hope tht was to confusing
8. or you could just remember the eqn they give in the book: (s1 x s2) / r

im pooooooooooing my pants.....
