Equal catchability

Top  Previous  Next

Simply Tagging offers two tests for equal catchability which are automatically run when either a closed or open estimation method is selected.


For open populations Leslie's Test (Leslie et al. 1953) is calculated using the first and the last samples in the series as the starting and finishing points.

For closed populations the Zero-Truncated Poisson Test is undertaken - this requires you to have 3 or more samples.
