AbstractThe overabundance of wild boar (Sus scrofa), can lead to diferent conflicts between hunting managers, farmers, conservationists and the general public. It is essential to know in detail the densities / abundances to implement proper management. So far, it has not been a single standardized method for determining the abundance or boar density applicable and valid in most situations. This is because their nocturnal and elusive behavior, and the methods used for other wild ungulates, do not produce reliable results. This study was condicted in Doñana National Park (Sout West Spain, DNP) where wild boar population is of concern regarding disease (tuberculosis) and conservation issues. The objective of this research was the determination of the density of wild boar in the DNP by camera trapping method (application of gas diffusion model to without identifying animals, Rowcliffe et al ., 2008) and compare with the traditional method based on dung counts along linear transects (FBII) and nocturnal transect method and application of distance sampling (MMD). There was a positive and significant correlation between the results of sampling distances, and those obtained by the method of camera traps. Besides the density values obtained for each area with both methods were very close, suggesting high accuracy in the estimate. Camera trapping method (with application of gas diffusion model to without identifying animals) resulted a promising method to standardize a comparable, affordable and reliable for most situations along wid boar distribution, for which previous infomation en spatial ecology in particular regions are needed.
