An Examination of Some Statistical Tests Used in the Analysis of Mark-Recapture Data

Abstract

Some statistical tests used in mark-recapture analysis are examined. It is shown that the tests presently available are insensitive and are not adequate under certain conditions. The most important of these is that a population stratified with respect to probability of capture may not, by present tests, be distinguished from a homogeneous population.
