    All species and subspecies of African great apes are listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature as endangered or critically endangered, and populations continue to decline. As human populations and ...
  • Methods in spatially explicit capture-recapture 

    Stevenson, Ben C. (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
    Capture-recapture (CR) methods are a ubiquitous means of estimating animal abundance from wildlife surveys. They rely on the detection and subsequent redetection of individuals over a number of sampling occasions. It is ...
  • The statistical development of integrated multi-state stopover models 

    Worthington, Hannah (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
    This thesis focusses on the analysis of ecological capture-recapture data and the estimation of population parameters of interest. Many of the common models applied to such data, for example the Cormack-Jolly-Seber model, ...
