Increasingly, distance sampling is being used in designed experiments, to assess the impact of a treatment on animal densities. We consider the issues that arise, and possible solutions. We illustrate the approach using a before-after control-impact (BACI) study, in which the effect of burns in ponderosa pine forest on bird densities was assessed.
