Clearly more analyses of this kind are needed, both as a means of evaluating the robustness of particular models, and as an aid to developing more general guidelines. Reporting the statistical power of our estimates can also be used to judge the reliability of particular analyses (Taylor and Gerrodette 1993; Shrader-Frechette and McCoy 1993). This point is illustrated by analyses of Taylor and Gerrodette (1993), who used data on the Vaquita and spotted owls to show that as sample sizes dropped, the ability to detect changes in population size, and declines in particular, also dropped.
