Key Features

  • Comprehensive reference on revolutionary new methods in ecology makes this the first and only book on the topic
  • Every methodological element has a detailed worked example with a code template, allowing you to learn by example
  • Includes an R package that contains all computer code and data sets on companion website


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.
