Title: On the estimation of spread rate for a biological population
Author: Clark, Jim; Horváth, Lajos; Lewis, Mark;
Source: Statistics & Probability Letters 51 (2001) 225-234
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: We propose a nonparametric estimator for the rate of spread of an introduced population. We prove that the limit distribution of the estimator is normal or stable, depending on the behavior of the moment generating function. We show that resampling methods can also be used to approximate the distribution of the estimators.
Keywords: Moment-generating function, normal distribution, bootstrap
