A weighted martingale method, akin to a moving average, is proposed to allow the use of modified closed-population methods in the estimation of the size of a smoothly changing open population when there are frequent capture occasions. We concentrate here on modifications to martingale estimating functions for model Mt, but a wide range of closed-population estimators may be modified in this fashion. The method is motivated by and applied to weekly capture-recapture data from the Mai Po bird… CONTINUE READING
