Nest Survival Bias Analysis

March 10, 2021

Return to ASC Ecosystems Analytics

This R script will run one replicate of one scenario used by Weiser (in review) to quantify biases in estimates of nest survival when nests are not found at the beginning of the nesting interval (age 0). The script simulates nest monitoring histories based on input parameters, applies models with or without an age effect to estimate daily survival rates, and calculates nest survival (to the end of the nesting interval) from either mean or age-specific daily survival rates.
