Abstract:We summarized the methods and application of wildlife surveys in China, and analyzed the problems and faults with these methods. We introduced the method of map strip sampling which we used in a survey of argali resources in all international hunting grounds, and compared the results and differences in application with line transect sampling. Map strip sampling has no length and width; it also doesn’t require the fixed shape of sample. The method provided a convenient way to determine the region for survey and calculated the area of the strip sample, thus resolving problems with calculating the survey area in past work. Compared with line transect sampling, this method is more flexible and operational, and more consistent with the actual situation. It makes the calculation of density return to its original meaning. The method has no threshold on technique and is better and easy to understand and operate for all local staff of wildlife conservation.
