TESTING CAPTURE HOMOGENEITY IN A RECAPTURE MODEL
BIOMETRIKA | OXFORD UNIV PRESS | Published : 1992
SUMMARY: This paper presents a new method of testing capture homogeneity in recapture experiments where there is time homogeneity. The basic set of statistics used is a lower triangular matrix whose (i, k)th element is the proportion of those animals caught on the next (i + 1)st occasion who have been caught k times until now. Both theoretical and simulation evidence is presented that the new procedure is superior to methods previously suggested. © 1992 Biometrika Trust.
