On valuing patches: estimating contributions to metapopulation growth with reverse-time capture-recapture modeling

Abstract

Metapopulation ecology has historically been rich in theory, yet analytical approaches for inferring demographic relationships among local populations have been few. We show how reverse-time multi-state capture–recapture models can be used to estimate the importance of local recruitment and interpopulation dispersal to metapopulation growth. We use… (More)
