SPACECAP: A Program to Estimate Animal Abundance and Density using Bayesian Spatially-Explicit Capture-Recapture Models

SPACECAP is a user-friendly software package for estimating animal densities using closed model capture-recapture sampling based on photographic captures using Bayesian spatially-explicit capture-recapture models. This approach offers advantage such as: substantially dealing with problems posed by individual heterogeneity in capture probabilities in conventional capture-recapture analyses. It also offers non-asymptotic inferences which are more appropriate for small samples of capture data typical of photo-capture studies.
