timcdlucas/encounteR: Estimate animal density and abundance using random encounter models

Random encounter models can be used to estimate animal abundances and densities. They are particularly useful for studies using camera traps and acoustic detectors. They generally assume that animals move randomly in space. The expected nuber of encounters between the animal population and the sensors can then be calculated. Given a certain number of detections, we can work out the unknown population density.
