BTSPAS: Bayesian Time-Strat. Population Analysis

BTSPAS provides advanced Bayesian methods to estimate abundance and run-timing from temporally-stratified Petersen mark-recapture experiments. Methods include hierarchical modelling of the capture probabilities and spline smoothing of the daily run size. This version uses JAGS to sample from the posterior distribution.
