Estimation of Population Growth Rate using Jolly-Seber Method and Robust Design Kim, Jihye; Hong, Taekyong; Choi, JinSik; Namkung, Pyong;
Mark-Recapture method for open population commonly use Jolly-Seber method. This method assumes that all animals are equally likely to be caught in each sample (the equal catchability). This objects are making introduction of Mark-Recapture method for open population and using the robust design that combine a open population method with close population method to solve upper problems. Then population growth rate estimators that are derived Pollock`s Jolly-Seber parameters and Kendall`s Jolly-Seber parameters are estimated.
