Format

17 by 2 numeric matrix, with the following columns:

xi

number of radio-collared animals in the detected (photographed) groups

gni

size of the detected groups

Details

During this survey, 120 collars were active.

Note

The small sample size of this census was caused by technical and weather related problems in July 2001. This provided an opportunity to see the behaviour of the different models under low sampling regime.
