Estimation of population size for additive-multiplicative models based on continuous-time recapture experiments


, : Estimation of population size for additive-multiplicative models based on continuous-time recapture experiments. Environmetrics 13(8): 847-857, December

An additive-multiplicative model and a Horvitz-Thompson-type estimator are proposed to estimate the unknown population size in a continuous-time recapture experiment. The proposed inference about the model parameters of the capture intensity is similar to that of Lin and Ying (1995). However, the population size in a recapture experiment is not known and a modification is needed. Simulation results are given to assess the properties of the proposed estimators and the associated inference procedures. A set of recapture data for deer mice is presented to demonstrate the performance of the estimating procedure.

Theoretical models suggest that in changing environments natural selection on two traits, maternal nesting behaviour and pivotal temperatures (those that divide the sexes) is important for maintaining viable offspring sex ratios in species with en...

Mass sinking is of survival value in those bloom...
