SELKIRK GRIZZLY BEARDNA MARK/RECAPTURE ANALYSIS


Mark recapture explained l.jpg
MARK/RECAPTURE EXPLAINED

  • 1ST you catch some animals in a popn and “mark” them

  • Later on you catch animals in the same popn

  • Some of those will be new animals, some will be recaptures

  • You use the ratio of “marked” to “recapture” to get a popnestimate


Mark recapture l.jpg
MARK/RECAPTURE

N = Popn size

M = # initially marked

n = # caught in 2nd effort

m = # recaptured


Critical assumptions l.jpg
CRITICAL ASSUMPTIONS

  • Marks must be permanent

  • All animals have an equal probability of getting caught

  • No changes in population between initial mark and later recapture


Mark recapture example l.jpg
MARK/RECAPTURE example

  • 1st mark: Trap 20 mice, paint their toenails red

  • Recapture: 1 week later, trap again; catch 16 mice, 4 have red toenails

So, N = (20 x 16) / 4, which equals 80

Results l.jpg
RESULTS

  • ID 15 different grizzly bears

    • 9 females, 6 males

    • 15 bears captured a total of 50 times

    • Multiple capture sessions allows for more complicated analysis

      • Test for diff male/female capture probability, diff capture prob among sessions, trap happy, trap shy


Results13 l.jpg
RESULTS

  • Best model estimated 18 grizzly bears

    • 11 females, 7 males

    • Density

      14.1 bears / 1,000 sq km (naïve estimate)

      9.7 bears / 1,000 sq km (SECR estimate)

      3.6 bears / 100 sq miles

      2.5 bears / 100 sq miles



Cautions about mark recap l.jpg
CAUTIONS about mark/recap

  • Point Estimate – says nothing about trend

  • Density cannot be extrapolated to the entire ecosystem

  • No info on reproduction
