An examination of some statistical tests used in the analysis of mark-recapture data

  title={An examination of some statistical tests used in the analysis of mark-recapture data},
  author={Derek A. Roff},
Some statistical tests used in mark-recapture analysis are examined. It is shown that the tests presently available are insensitive and are not adequate under certain conditions. The most important of these is that a population stratified with respect to probability of capture may not, by present tests, be distinguished from a homogenous population.
