This week, Katie Bickerton from the Statistical Ecology group will be speaking about “Use of capture-recapture models to estimate abundance in a translocated gecko population: bridging a gap between statistics and conservation management.”
Abstract: “Capture-recapture surveys are commonly used to monitor translocated animal populations and usually assume the first survey samples from an existing population of unknown size. This, however, is not the case in translocated populations. In this talk, I will explain the model constraints we used to adapt capture-recapture models using a case study from Mauritius. I will also give an introduction to conservation translocations and how conservation has been impacted by COVID.”
We look forward to seeing you on teams at 4pm on Friday 27th November for the talk!
