Rachel Fewster - Modern statistical methods for Capture-Recapture
The reading group will meet this Friday (16th October) at 1pm. We're going to read another paper on Capture-recapture using modern technology, this time with a more statistical slant. The paper is by Rachel Fewster and colleagues at University of Auckland. Rachel focuses on how new technologies, such as DAN barcoding, acoustic profiles, impact on the assumptions on the statistical models used in capture-recapture, and developing methods to allow better use of the data collected in this way.
We will be reading a paper submitted to Statistical Science titled Trace-Contrast Models for Capture-Recapture without Capture Histories.
