    Introduction to mark-recapture modelling
    22 July - 26 July 2019
    University of Newcastle, Newcastle

    In this 4.5-day workshop participants will be introduced to statistical modelling approaches that can be applied to mark-recapture data through a combination of lectures on the underlying theory, and worked examples. Topics to be covered include:
    • Abundance estimation
    • Spatially-explicit capture-recapture
    • Survival estimation
    • Multi-state mark-recapture
    • Half-day discussion/consulting session

    All examples will be conducted in the freeware R. Participants are expected to be comfortable in using R to perform basic tasks such as data input/output, data summaries, loading packages and simple plots, as this will be the main software used during exercises. This course may not be appropriate for people with no previous experience in using R.
