This new field has attracted a high level of interest lately due to the remarkable efficiency gain possible for some types of population. Leading researchers in this area offer a cutting-edge, comprehensive look at adaptive sampling designs in which the procedure for selecting the units to include in the sample may depend on observations made during the survey. These strategies provide a solution for the long-standing problem of estimating the abundance of rare, clustered populations.
