Abstract

1. Integrated population modelling is proving to be an important and useful technique in statistical ecology.

eral different data sets described by different structured models are being analysed in combination.

from simulating data when model parameter values are obtained from the assumed asymptotic normal distribu-

sian P-values. Calibration of the resulting statistics is achieved as repeated data sets are easily simulated from the

measures can highlight different aspects of fit.

4. The approach of using calibrated simulation to check the goodness-of-fit of integrated population models is

in the integrated analysis, and for each component data set, discrepancy measures of goodness-of-fit are

using additional simulations. The heron application is shown to be feasible, but is substantially harder to cali-

We demonstrate the importance of taking more than one discrepancy measure for time-series data. Avenues for

future research are outlined. This article has supplementary materials on line.
