About this book

Spatial Capture-Recapture provides a comprehensive how-to manual with detailed examples of spatial capture-recapture models based on current technology and knowledge. Spatial Capture-Recapture provides you with an extensive step-by-step analysis of many data sets using different software implementations. The authors' approach is practical – it embraces Bayesian and classical inference strategies to give the reader different options to get the job done. In addition, Spatial Capture-Recapture provides data sets, sample code and computing scripts in an R package.

Biography

Dr J Andrew Royle is currently a Research Statistician at the U.S. Geological Survey's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. His research is focused on the application of probability and statistics to ecological problems, especially those related to animal sampling and demographic modeling. Much of his research over the last 10 years has been devoted to the development of methods illustrated in this book. He has authored or coauthored more than 100 journal articles, and co-authored the books Spatial Capture-Recapture, Hierarchical Modeling and Inference in Ecology and Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence, all published by Academic Press.

Media reviews

" [...] a book for the DIY quantitative ecologist who wants to understand their data [...] I enjoyed it tremendously and it already had a strong influence on how I think about some of my current research projects."
Basic and Applied Ecology

" [...] a timely and informative contribution that summarizes the history and motivation behind SCR models, [...] will be a vital addition to wildlife ecologist's book shelves for many years to come."
The Journal of Wildlife Management, Sep 14
