I've a phpbb3 forum in which I've a small Google ad in the viewtopic_body file. Would I be right in thinking my Google Adsense stats for page views will also contain visits by the registered bots?

If so, is there any way to get a true reading of real people visiting, without interfering with the bots and their functions?

Your absolute best metric is looking at your server logs. There's a lot of information in those files!
