pcapture {bayess} R Documentation

## Posterior probabilities for the multiple stage capture-recapture model

### Description

This function computes the posterior expectation of the population size for a multiple stage capture-recapture experiment (Chapter 5) under a uniform prior on the range (0,400).

### Usage

pcapture(T, nplus, nc)


### Arguments

 T number of experiments nplus total number of captured animals nc total number of captures

### Details

This analysis is based on the restrictive assumption that all dippers captured in the second year were already present in the population during the first year.

### Value

numerical value of the posterior expectation

pdarroch
sum((1:400)*pcapture(2,70,81))
