The probability of breeding is known to increase with age early in life in many long-lived species. This increase may be due to experience accumulated through past breeding attempts. Recent methodological advances allowing accounting for unobserved breeding episodes, we analyzed the encounter histories of 14716 greater flamingos over 25 years to get a(More)
The desire to predict the consequences of global environmental change has been the driver towards more realistic models embracing the variability and uncertainties inherent in ecology. Statistical ecology has gelled over the past decade as a discipline that moves away from describing patterns towards modelling the ecological processes that generate these(More)
Spatial heterogeneity, especially in mortality risk, is a major factor shaping population dynamics. Here we study the impacts of spatial heterogeneity in hunting pressure on the demography of Eurasian woodcock Scolopax rusticola, a relatively long-lived migratory game bird. We develop capture–recapture–recovery models in which both seasonality and spatial(More)
Breeding success in cliff-nesting seabirds has until now been estimated through repeated nest checks by field workers during the breeding season. The use of automatic cameras offers a method for collecting mark–recapture data that can be modelled in order to estimate productivity without making recurring inspections. This saves expense and work hours in the(More)
In wild animal population studies, capture heterogeneity is likely to be prevalent and can reduce the accuracy of vital rate estimates. Here, we test how individual detection probabilities vary through the breeding season in a population of a cliff-nesting colonial seabird, the Black-legged Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla). Specifically, we expected detection(More)
