The effect of varying catchability in a population on the Petersen tag-recapture estimate is discussed. It is found that the usual estimates of variance based on the hypergeometric distribution are still satisfactory even when there is variation in catchability. A regression technique of Marten's, based on a Schnabel census, for detecting variations in catchability is also discussed briefly.
