Esporles, July 9, 2018.  This introductory course aims to introduce students, researchers and environmental managers to the theory and practical aspects of the analysis of capture-mark-recapture and –recovery data to estimate survival, recruitment and dispersal probabilities. 

 

 

The course is based on theoretical classes as well as practical sessions with real and simulated data.

 

 

 

The analysis of individual-based data is rapidly expanding in ecological studies. Statisticians and population ecologists are working together adapting the analytical framework to answer finer ecological questions. We believe there is a need for an introductory course on capture-mark-recapture techniques aimed to those PhD students, postdocs, researchers and environmental managers willing to approach this constantly evolving field. No previous knowledge on capture-mark-recapture or capture-mark-recovery analyses is necessary.
