 Phylogenetic diversity measures based on Hill numbersAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 365:3599609. 2010..The proposed approach is applied to forest data for interpreting the effects of thinning...  A twostage probabilistic approach to multiplecommunity similarity indicesAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biometrics 64:117886. 2008..These generalized NESS and Morisita indices are applied to comparison of three size classes of plant data (seedling, saplings, and trees) within oldgrowth and secondary rain forest plots in Costa Rica...  Coveragebased rarefaction and extrapolation: standardizing samples by completeness rather than sizeAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan 30043
Ecology 93:253347. 2012..Several hypothetical and real examples demonstrate these advantages...  Nonparametric lower bounds for species richness and shared species richness under sampling without replacementAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biometrics 68:91221. 2012..Real data sets are used for illustration. We also test the proposed bounds by using subsamples generated from large real surveys or censuses, and their performance is compared with that of some previous estimators...  Proposing a resolution to debates on diversity partitioningAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan 30043
Ecology 93:203751. 2012..These may help to resolve the choice of a proper formula for alpha diversity. Some related issues are also briefly discussed...  The PetersenLincoln estimator and its extension to estimate the size of a shared populationAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biom J 50:95770. 2008..We discuss a special case where the correlation bias of the proposed estimator due to dependence between samples vanishes. The proposed method is applied to a study of the relapse rate of illicit drug use in Taiwan...  Abundancebased similarity indices and their estimation when there are unseen species in samplesAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu 30043, Taiwan
Biometrics 62:36171. 2006..Data on successional vegetation in six tropical forests are used for illustration. Advantages and disadvantages of some commonly applied indices are briefly discussed...  Estimating the number of species in a stochastic abundance modelAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biometrics 58:5319. 2002..S.A. Simulation studies show that this estimator compares well with maximum likelihood estimators (i.e., empirical Bayes estimators from the Bayesian viewpoint) for which an iterative numerical procedure is needed and may be infeasible...  Capturerecapture when time and behavioral response affect capture probabilitiesA Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biometrics 56:42733. 2000..The bootstrap method is suggested for constructing a variance estimator and confidence interval. An example of the deer mouse analyzed in Otis et al. (1978, Wildlife Monographs 62, 93) is given for illustration...  The applications of capturerecapture models to epidemiological dataA Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, HsinChu, Taiwan
Stat Med 20:312357. 2001..These data sets provide examples to show the usefulness of the capturerecapture method in correcting for underascertainment. The limitations of the methodology and some cautionary remarks are also discussed...  Estimating population size via sample coverage for closed capturerecapture modelsS M Lee
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu 30043, Taiwan
Biometrics 50:8897. 1994..Real data examples are given for illustration. A simulation study investigates the behavior of the proposed procedure...  Sufficient sampling for asymptotic minimum species richness estimatorsAnne Chao
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, 30043 Taiwan
Ecology 90:112533. 2009..331.10 times the original effort; median approximately equal to 0.80). An Excel spreadsheet tool is provided for calculating necessary sampling effort for either abundance data or replicated incidence data...  Modeling animals' behavioral response by Markov chain models for capturerecapture experimentsHsin Chou Yang
Institute of Statistics, National Tsing Hua University, Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Biometrics 61:10107. 2005..A data set is analyzed to illustrate the use of the Markovian models in interpreting animals' behavioral response. Simulation results are reported to examine the performance of the estimators...
