Both individual and temporal differences in capture probability (Mth)

Top  Previous  Next

It is possible to envisage situations in which both individual and temporal changes in capture probability are acting. For example, there could be individual differences in activity, and also changes brought about by the weather which affect all the animals. The estimator of Chao et al. (1992) is used. This method requires full individual data and therefore is unavailable within Simply Tagging if you have entered only summary data.

 

The results for an Mth model are displayed by clicking on the Mth tab, which will appear once the model has been selected from the Closed methods drop-down menu.
