Estimation of Age-Specific Breeding Probabilities from Capture–Recapture Data

Authors


Abstract

Summary. We provide a new method for estimating the age-specific breeding probabilities from recaptures or resightings of animals marked as young. Our method is more direct than previous methods and allows the modeler to fit and compare models where the age-specific breeding proportions are equal over different cohorts or are a function of external covariates.
