popbayes

Bayesian model to estimate population trends from counts series

Infers trends of one or several populations over time from series of counts. It does so by accounting for count precision, smoothing the population rate of increase over time, and accounting for the maximum demographic potential of species.

The goal of the R package popbayes is to infer trends of one or several populations over time from series of counts. It does so by accounting for count precision (provided or inferred based on expert knowledge, e.g. guesstimates), smoothing the population rate of increase over time, and accounting for the maximum demographic potential of species. Inference is carried out in a Bayesian framework.
