The Jolly-Seber model: more than just Carl J. Schwarz
 

Summary: The Jolly-Seber model: more than just
abundance
Carl J. Schwarz

Abstract
The Jolly-Seber model provides estimates of abundance, survival,
and capture rates from capture-recapture experiments. We will re-
view the use of the Jolly-Seber model in open populations for these
purposes and the recent extensions of the single cohort model to the
following cases: a multiple-cohort studies where recruitment rates
are compared among cohorts; b age-speci c breeding proportions;
c population growth rates. Finally, we propose new areas of research
needed for this model.
Carl J. Schwarz is an Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics,
