Data from: Techniques for estimating the size of low density gopher tortoise populations

Jonathan M. Stober, Rocio Prieto-Gonzalez, Lora L. Smith, Tiago A. Marques & Len Thomas
The gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) is a candidate species for range-wide listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act; hence reliable population estimates are required to aid management and guide policy needed to recover the species. Line transect distance sampling has been adopted as the preferred technique to estimate population size. However, when tortoise density is low, it can be challenging to obtain enough tortoise observations to reliably estimate the probability of detection, a vital component...
