Recaptures - tab

Top  Previous  Next

The Recaptures tab is generated by the Jolly-Seber method for open populations.


It displays the standard table of the total number of marked individuals recaptured on a given day bearing marks from a previous day.

For example the column labelled 1 holds the number of animals caught on day 1 that were recaptured on the sampling occasion given by the row number.


The final row gives the calculated Z(i) numbers - these are the numbers of individuals marked before sample i which were not caught in sample i but were subsequently captured (yes it is a little confusing).


The table can be printed by selecting File: Print with the window open.
