Finds the maximum likelihood estimate of the inverse of the dispersion parameter, kappa, often denoted alpha, given a vector of egg or worm burdens. Assumes max likelihood estimate of the mean of the negative binomial distribution is the empirical mean of the vector Returns the message from 'optim' if convergence fails
vector of individual egg or worm burden intensities
max likelihood estimate of the dispersion parameter
