Standard behavioural and time effect models via unconditional (complete) likelihood approach
Description
Comparative point and interval estimates for the population size N obtained fitting many alternative behavioural and time effect capturerecapture models. AIC index is reported for each alternative model.
Usage
1 2 
Arguments
data 
can be one of the following:

last.column.count 
a logical. In the default case 
neval 
a positive integer. 
by.incr 
a positive integer. 
which.mod 
a character. 
sort 
character. 
Details
The available models are: M_0, M_b, M_t, M_{c_1}, M_{c_1b}, M_{c_2}, M_{c_2b}, M_{mc},M_{mc_{int}}, M_{mc_{count}} and M_{mc_{count.int}}.
This function LBRecap.all
can be computing intensive for high values of neval
.
Value
A dataframe with one row corresponding to each model and the following columns:
model: model considered
npar: number of parameters
AIC: Akaike's information criterion
Nhat: estimate of population size
Ninf: lower 95 \% confidence limit
Nsup: upper 95 \% confidence limit
