traps object (markocc) or capthist object (Tu, Tm, Tn)

value

numeric matrix of detectors x occasions, or a vector (see Details)

...

other arguments (not used)

Details

For replacement of markocc, ‘value’ should be a vector of integers indicating the occasions on which animals are sighted only (0) or marked or recaptured (1).

For replacement of Tu, Tm or Tn, ‘value’ may be a scalar (total count) or a detectors x occasions matrix.

Value

markocc(object) returns the markocc vector of the traps object. markocc(object) may be NULL.

Tu, Tm and Tn return the respective attributes of a capthist object, or NULL if they are unspecified.

sighting(object) returns TRUE if the markocc attribute indicates at least one sighting-only occasion.
