Abstract

Almost any type of sample has some utilitywhen estimating population quantities. The focus inthis paper is to indicate what type or combination oftypes of sampling can be used in various situationsranging from a sample designed to establishcause-effect or legal challenge to one involving asimple subjective judgment. Several of these methodshave little or no utility in the scientific area buteven in the best of circumstances, particularlycomplex ones, both probabilistic and non-probabilisticprocedures have to be used because of lack ofknowledge and cost. We illustrate this with a marbledmurrelet example.
