BTSPAS: Bayesian Time-Stratified Population Analysis

Provides advanced Bayesian methods to estimate abundance and run-timing from temporally-stratified Petersen mark-recapture experiments. Methods include hierarchical modelling of the capture probabilities and spline smoothing of the daily run size. Theory described in Bonner and Schwarz (2011) <doi:10.1111/j.1541-0420.2011.01599.x>.
