Analysis of Capture-Recapture Data

Analysis of Capture-Recapture Data

Rachel S. McCrea, Byron J. T. Morgan

August 01, 2014

An important first step in studying the demography of wild animals is to identify the animals uniquely through applying markings, such as rings, tags, and bands. Once the animals are encountered again, researchers can study different forms of capture-recapture data to estimate features, such as the...
