There are some papers which describe the use of bootstrap techniques in point
process statistics. The aim of the present paper is to show that the form in
which bootstrap is used there is dubious. In case of variance estimation of
pair correlation function estimators the used bootstrap techniques lead to
results which can be obtained simpler without simulation; furthermore, they
differ from the desired results. The problem to obtain confidence regions for
the intensity function of inhomogeneous Poisson processes can be easily solved
without bootstrap techniques.
