Draw Capture Rates from Uniform Distribution

Share:

Description

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

Usage

1
drawCapRatesUnif(lower, upper)

Arguments

lower

Lower bound of the unifrom distribution

upper

Upper bound of the uniform distribution

Details

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

Value

function

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

## Specify the distribution

dist <- drawCapRatesUnif(lower=0.01, upper=1)

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

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