Draw Capture Rates from Exponential Distribution

Description

This function is just a wrapper for rexp which can be used in conjuction with simCapture to simulate capture data where the rates are drawn from an exponential distribution

Usage

1

Arguments

r

Rate parameter of an exponenital distirbution

Details

This function returns a function which can be used as an argument for simCapture

Value

A function which takes the number of capture rates to draw as an argument

## Specify the distribution

dist <- drawCapRatesExp(r=0.5)

## Simulate a data set with the capture rates drawn from dist

data <- simCapture(n=30, s=100, dist.func=dist)
