Description

Calculates carcass detection probability based on persistence time, searcher efficiency, search interval and duration of study.

Usage

1
perickson(t.bar=NULL, s, f, d)

Arguments

t.bar

mean carcass persistence time in days (or another time unit)

s

mean (e.g. daily) carcass persistence probability.

f

searcher efficiency: probability that a carcass present on the study plot is detected by a searcher during a seach.

d

search interval: time (in days) between two searches

Details

Time measurements (search interval and carcass persistence time or persistence probability) should be given in the same unit. Either t.bar or s has to be provided.

Value

a proportion: the probability that an animal that dies during the study period on the study plot is detected by a searcher
