Supplement

The null basic spatial capture–recapture model written in JAGS code. The model estimates density and abundance from individual-based capture–mark–recapture data where individuals can only be trapped once per sampling occasion.

Description

The SCR_null_basic.txt file provides the JAGS model definition for fitting a spatial capture–recapture model to estimate animal density and abundance. The file can be called through rjags or run directly in the graphical program, JAGS.
