The coefficient of variation of effective sampling area predicts the bias in estimated density (Efford and Mowat 2014). These functions assist its calculation from fitted finite mixture models.

CV
computes the coefficient of variation of x
. If
p
is provided then the distribution is assumed to be
discrete, with support x
and class membership probabilities
p
(scaled automatically to sum to 1.0).
CVa
computes CV(a) where a is the effective
sampling area of Borchers and Efford (2008).
CVa0
computes CV(a0) where a0 is the singledetector sampling
area defined as a0 = 2 π
lambda0.sigma^2 (Efford and Mowat 2014); a0 is a convenient
surrogate for a, the effective sampling area. CV(a0) uses
either the fitted MLE of a0 (if the a0 parameterization has been
used), or a0 computed from the estimates of lambda0 and sigma.
CVa
and CVa0
do not work for models with individual
covariates.
Numeric
Do not confuse the function CVa with the estimated relative standard
error of the estimate of a from derived
, also labelled CVa
in the output. The relative standard error RSE is often labelled CV
in the literature on capture–recapture, but this can cause unnecessary
confusion. See also RSE
