By Steven C. Amstrup,Trent L. McDonald,Bryan F. J. Manly

Every day, biologists in parkas, raincoats, and rubber boots move into the sector to trap and mark a number of animal species. again within the workplace, statisticians create analytical versions for the sector biologists' facts. yet repeatedly, representatives of the 2 professions don't totally comprehend one another's roles. This booklet bridges this hole via supporting biologists comprehend cutting-edge statistical tools for studying capture-recapture information. In so doing, statisticians also will turn into extra accustomed to the layout of box reports and with the real-life concerns dealing with biologists.

Reliable results of capture-recapture reviews are important to answering key ecological questions. Is the inhabitants expanding or lowering? Do extra or fewer animals have a selected attribute? In answering those questions, biologists can't desire to catch and mark whole populations. and regularly, the populations switch unpredictably in the course of a examine. hence, more and more refined versions were hired to transform information into solutions to ecological questions. This booklet, by means of specialists in capture-recapture research, introduces the main updated equipment for info research whereas explaining the speculation in the back of these tools. Thorough, concise, and transportable, it is going to be immensely helpful to biologists, biometricians, and statisticians, scholars in either fields, and a person else engaged within the capture-recapture process.
