The survey of elephant population estimate using the dung count method. It was conducted from December 2010 to February 2011. The report doesn't explain some of the parameters such as site of decay rate or defecation rate which had to be derived from secondary information and precisions such as dung encounter rate and dung density which had to be calculated.
