We walked transect every month in the morning before 10.00 am, when Himalayan Monals forage on the ground around their roosting sites (Ramesh, 2003).
Porem, o primeiro registro de um Transect foi publicado por Giraud-Soulavie, 1784, representando a seccao transversal das encostas montanhosas dos Vivaroises, atraves dos respectivos limites dos climas, da vegetacao, da pressao atmosferica e altitude em relacao ao mar MediterrAneo (ROBIC, 2014; EGERTON, 2018).
Transects 50 m wide and perpendicular to the line were created at 100 m intervals along the pipeline and control lines, using ArcMap 10.5.
Snorkel Survey Transect (SST) types: A = original USGS transects; B = approximate matches to original transects; C = new transects created by MORA staff.
rugosa were most frequently found along the paths and on mowed lawn at the southern end of the island (Southwest transect).The lowest numbers were found in the north (North transect) and along the eastern side of the island (Northeast and Southeast transects).
In keeping with native grass cover declines after the 1994-1995 drought, and continued declines to 2014, we found that surfaces eroded on all 10 transects at a mean rate of -1.6 mm/year from 1995-2014, whereas in the previous 12 years, from 1983-1995, transect surfaces had accumulated sediment, on average, about +0.7 mm/year.
Transect lengths for the cable surveys were measured using an existing map of the cables and positions from a USBL tracking system on the submersible.
We also found that the power to detect a 10% change in roe deer abundance was similar for AI-p and AI-v for a low number of transect repetitions but was higher for AI-p than AI-v when the number of repetition was > 2 (Fig.
Individual monkey groups when seen were only documented once per survey, even if the group moved to a different sub-section of the transect. Other social species like white-lipped and collared peccaries groups were counted as single entities, but unlike monkeys, were recorded each time presence of the group was seen, even in sequential 50 m sub-sections (Carrillo et al., 2000).
The main objectives of the Transect 2013 network are to investigate the impact of GPS PWV on high-resolution forecasts of North American monsoon organized convective events and to develop applications of GPS-Met to studies of convective initiation and life cycle over complex terrain.
In order to collect field data on population dynamics of Himalayan Griffon vulture, 187 transect surveys of the breeding areas were carried out in both the Jhelum and Neelum Valleys during the breeding seasons of 2005, 2007-2010 with the exception of year 2006, when the study area was struck by a massive earthquake on October 8, 2005 and destroyed roads and bridge structures leading to these sampling sites.
