Abstract

Little attention has been paid to the use of multi-sample batch-marking studies,

fully efficient estimates. However, recently, Huggins et al. (2010) present a

estimating equations to solve for survival and capture probabilities and then

have developed and maximized the likelihood for batch-marking studies. We

would have been obtained from an extended batch-marking study. We compare

(CMAS) model with those of the extended batch-marking model to determine

estimates of abundance were similar for all three estimators: CMAS, Huggins,

ing the CMAS model in terms of precision; however, the likelihood typically

et al. (2010). When faced with designing a batch-marking study, researchers

they can design studies in order to reduce mean square error by manipulating

capture probabilities and sample size.
