Overall, the curvilinear regression had a better fit to the data, as it had a higher t value for the test that the slope was zero. The two significant fitted regressions (unforced linear and curvilinear) had different predictions (Fig. 5). At low and high abundance of lambs, the unforced linear regression predicted a higher number of lambs killed, but at intermediate numbers of lambs, the curvilinear regression had the higher prediction. The predictions of each fitted regression could be tested with an independent set of data, though this has not been done.

The only significant effect at the transect level was a difference in damage between times of sampling. There were not significant differences between farms.

The comparative biases and cost-effectiveness of methods of damage estimation and of analysis need to be assessed. 9. 1 Bird strikes on aircraft Problem definition and species Birds and aircraft share airspace but do not always mix.
