Abstract

I review concepts of basic graph design and outline general guidance for basic preparation and presentation of data. I comment on the continued use of convenient summary graphics found in our literature where data are often misrepresented and review potential remedies that will improve data description and graphical efficiency for the most frequently used graph types in wildlife data reporting. I suggest that graphics should play a larger role in data description and analysis and less in summarizing study results.
