Session Description

Recent Developments in and Applications of Spatial Capture-Recapture Models

Organizer: Andy Royle, USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel MD

Sponsor: TWS Biometrics Working Group

This symposium will provide wildlife managers and scientists a concentrated overview of spatially-explicit capture-recapture methods. Spatial capture-recapture is a relatively new methodological area which in recent years has grown widely in its application. As applications have increased, so has the need for more sophisticated models that accommodate real-world systems. This session will present recent model developments, and demonstrate applications of these new models. Some speakers will present the statistical development of these newly developed models along with illustrative applications. Application presenters will provide an example demonstrating how these models are useful in real-world systems. Several presenters will focus on software implementation.
