Description

Simulation of "removal" data from a multinomial-mixture model.

Usage

1
2
simMultMix(nsites = 100, nsurveys = 3, nyears = 4,
  lambda = 3, theta = 0.5, p = 0.3)

Arguments

nsites

number of sites.

nsurveys

number of replicate (secondary) samples

nyears

number of primary samples: years, seasons etc.

lambda

expected local population size.

theta

availability, the proportion of the population available for detection.

p

detection probability.

Value

A list with the values of the input arguments and the following additional elements:

M

true local population size, vector length nsites

N

true number available for detection, vector length nsites

y

number detected, nsites x nyears x nsurveys

y2d

number detected as a matrix, nsites x (nyears*nsurveys)
