Applied methods for analysing capture-recapture (mark-recapture) data using spatially explicit and non-spatial techniques (MARK01)

2 September 2019 - 6 September 2019

£275.00 - £550.00

Course overview:

Population demographic parameters (such as survival) and density of a target species are fundamental pieces of information highly desired by ecologists.  This course will cover both capture-recapture analyses (CMR) analyses required to obtain estimates of demographic parameters and spatial capture-recapture analyses (SCR) required to obtain spatially-robust estimates of density. We will cover introductory concepts of both analytical approaches using hands-on demonstrations in class. Course content for both CMR and SCR will include data collection and survey design, data processing and formatting, importing data, different model structures and assessing goodness of fit, and interpreting outputs.  Each day, we’ll reserve time for open work sessions where participants can receive mentoring and advice from lecturers while applying their newly acquired skills to analysing their own data sets.

Intended Audience

Researchers interested in how to analyse capture-recapture data to estimate demographic parameters or density.
