Open capture-recapture models with heterogeneity: II. Jolly-Seber model.

  title={Open capture-recapture models with heterogeneity: II. Jolly-Seber model.},
  author={Shirley Pledger and Kenneth H. Pollock and James L. Norris},
  volume={66 3},
Estimation of abundance is important in both open and closed population capture-recapture analysis, but unmodeled heterogeneity of capture probability leads to negative bias in abundance estimates. This article defines and develops a suite of open population capture-recapture models using finite mixtures to model heterogeneity of capture and survival probabilities. Model comparisons and parameter estimation use likelihood-based methods. A real example is analyzed, and simulations are used to… CONTINUE READING
