    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

    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

    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
