La relation fréquence-abondance. Aspects théoriques| application à un peuplement d'oiseaux

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The frequency of a species (proportion of samples in which the species is recorded) is a non linear function of its abundance, which is modified by the pattern of distribution of the individuals and by the surface of the area sampled. These parameters determine the probability of presence of a species. The probability of detection of an individual depends on species detectability and on the sampling duration. Several models are proposed to describe the influence of these parameters on the relationship between frequency and abundance... The proposed models have been applied to a series of bird censuses performed by J. Blondel.
