Ranking of methods was similar across criteria. Models accounting for individual heterogeneity performed best in all assessment criteria. For populations from heterogeneous habitats without obvious covariates explaining individual heterogeneity, we recommend using the moment estimator or the interpolated jackknife estimator (both implemented in CAPTURE /MARK ). Thus, usually estimation methods have to be used. Capture-mark-recapture (CMR) is a commonly used approach for estimating population size 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Meanwhile, a huge range of different statistical models exists for analysing CMR data 5, 6, 7, 8. Having trouble? Try the java version in IE.

These studies either used penned populations of known size 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 or compared estimates to the number of individuals obtained in complete removals from areas of limited size, e.g., small pools 18, ant nests 19, or fenced-off areas 20.
The former usually resulted in a minimum population size and the latter can be recommended when there is a long tail of low capture probabilities. Models with covariates and mixture models performed poorly.

PLoS ONE 9(6 e98840. doi:10.1371/journal. In a second approach, we created a fully independent reference population b. Mark-recapture data collected from a population of the arboreal, nocturnal gecko Gehyra variegata (Dumril Bibron, 1836) living at the huts of the station in Kinchega National Park (3228 S, 14220 E western New South Wales, Australia, provided the basis for the evaluation of the selected population size estimators 21. Our approach identified suitable methods and extended options to evaluate the performance of mark-recapture population size estimators under field conditions, which is essential for selecting an appropriate method and obtaining reliable results in ecology and conservation biology, and thus for sound management. Materials and Methods Data collection This research was carried out under permit number A478 NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. This licence covered all animal ethics considerations as well as a permit to capture and mark the animals. Consequently, good recommendations based on field data for the most suitable methods for various natural populations are needed to validate and complement simulation studies. The performance of CMR models depends on their assumptions, how these assumptions can be met in the field, and on the robustness of the estimators to violations of the underlying assumptions. Abstract Reliable estimates of population size are fundamental in many ecological studies and biodiversity conservation. Selecting appropriate methods to estimate abundance is often very difficult, especially if data are scarce. Most studies concerning the reliability of different estimators used simulation data based on assumptions about capture variability that do not necessarily reflect conditions in natural populations. Introduction Knowledge of population size is of key importance in many fields of animal ecology, evolution, and conservation biology. For natural populations of animals, it is rarely possible to count all individuals. Each primary period consisted of five to sixteen secondary periods (usually consecutive nights). Potential habitat within a strip of 50 m around the huts was surveyed to detect dispersing individuals 21.

Thus, it is important to study the performance of various estimators under field conditions. For this purpose, it is essential to have populations of known size available. As this is rarely the case, few such studies exist and most compared only a small number of methods.
