Models and model selection uncertainty in estimating growth rates of endangered freshwater mussel populations
Appropriate inference of population status for endangered species is extremely important. Using a single model for estimating population growth rates is typically inadequate for assessing endangeredExpand

Variation in the catchability of yellow perch (Perca flavescens) in the fisheries of Lake Erie using a Bayesian error-in-variable approach
Catch per unit effort (cpue) from fisheries, and abundance or biomass indices from fisheryindependent surveys are often used to infer the dynamics of exploited populations. To do this, cpues andExpand

A simulation study of impacts of error structure on modeling stock-recruitment data using generalized linear models
Stock-recruitment (S-R) models are commonly fitted to S-R data with a least-squares method. Errors in modeling are usually assumed to be normal or lognormal, regardless of whether such an assumptionExpand
