Abstract

This paper presents a method of testing for animal heterogeneity when the capture effort is not constant from occasion to occasion. The basic set of statistics used is a lower triangular matrix whose (/,/c)th element is the proportion of those animals caught on the next (i + l)th 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. The method may breakdown for certain kinds of behavioural response. © 1993, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
