bsam-package: Fit Bayesian state-space models to animal tracking data

Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Models provided are DCRW (for location filtering), DCRWS (for location filtering and behavioural state estimation), and their hierarchical versions (hDCRW, hDCRWS) to estimate parameters jointly across multiple individual tracking datasets. The models are fit in JAGS using Markov chain Monte Carlo simulation methods. The models are intended to be fit to Argos satellite tracking data but options exist to allow fits to other tracking data types (type ?fit_ssm for details).

Fit Bayesian state-space models to Argos satellite tracking data. Models provided are DCRW - for location filtering; DCRWS - for location filtering and behavioural state estimation with 2 behavioural states; hDCRW and hDCRWS - hierarchical models for location filtering only, and location filtering with behavioural state estimation, respectively, across multiple animals.

The hierarchical models may provide improved location and/or behavioural state estimates compared to fitting DCRW/DCRWS to individual datasets.
