  • Qudrat: square frame, study small area and scale up,
  • Capture Recapture: capture and mark and recapture, population size=(1st sample x 2nd sample) / 2nd sample marked, accuracy, changes
  • Sample size affects accuracy

Ecosystems and Distrabution of Organisms-

  • Ecosystem is all the organisms living a particular area (as well as non living (abiotic) conditions)
