Details

For replacement, the number of rows of value must match exactly the number of rows in object.

Value

covariates(object) returns the dataframe of covariates associated with object. covariates(object) may be NULL.

Individual covariates are stored in the ‘covariates’ attribute of a capthist object.

Covariates used for modelling density are stored in the ‘covariates’ attribute of a mask object.

Detector covariates may vary between sampling occasions. In this case, columns in the detector covariates data.frame are associated with particular times; the matching is controlled by the timevaryingcov attribute.
